Mannlicher 1900 made in the former Dreyse factory for his Majesty
https://www.morphyauctions.com/jamesdjulia/item/1291-369/

"7.65 Mannlicher. Exceptionally rare M1901 Mannlicher, factory engraved with walnut grips inlaid with ivory. The pistol has a 5-1/2″ bbl with a fixed front and rear sight. SN is repeated on left side of the bbl, chamber and on the floorplate forward of the serrations. Crown/Crown U proofing appears just over the SNs and on the left side of the slide. The front strap is marked “RHEINISCHE METALLWAAREN U. / MASCHINEN-FABRIK, ABTEILUNG SOEMMERDA. / EHRHARDT WERKE.”, translating “Rhenish Metalware and Machine Factory, Sommerda Division, Ehrhardt Works”. Virtually the entire surface has been engraved with a deeply chiseled vine and floral pattern. The bbl and frame are blued while the slide and sideplate are etched grey. Several smaller components including extractor, thumb safety and trigger are gold plated. The grips have ivory inlays that encircle 1-1/4″ x 1″ oval ivory escutcheons,, probably bone, finely engraved with the Imperial Hohenzollern crest. Pistol is presented in an embossed and gilded leather marquetry case whose lid has a raised Hohenzollern crest surrounded by a multicolored, Arabic inspired design that is repeated around the base. Retracting two pins from the base releases the lid to view the interior, which is lined with grey baize. Marked in gold inside the lid is “EHRHARDT WERKE / ABTEILUNG SOMMERDA, GEWEHRFABRIK / SYSTEM MANNLICHER 1903.” The base is compartmentalized for the pistol, oiler, a stripper clip (missing), screwdriver and cleaning rod whose handles have been engraved in a complementary pattern. Very few of these pistols are known. Two similar examples were purportedly gifts or presentations to the Sultan of Turkey; this example reflects presentation to Kaiser Wilhelm, circa 1903. At this time the Mannlicher pistol was involved in competitive trials with the German Army against the Luger and Mauser C96 pistols and this pistol may represent an attempt to curry favour at the highest level, the “1903” nomenclature also presenting it as the very latest development when presented. Accompanying paperwork includes capture papers from James F. Buie dated Oct. 13, 1945 specifying this exact pistol. Another letter from 1957, also from James F. Buie, mentions he had obtained the gun in a munitions factory from a military person claiming to be the nephew of Kaiser Wilhelm, further supporting the historic association. PROVENANCE: Ex Visser collection. Capture Papers. Collection of Dr. Geoffrey Sturgess. "



























pair of target pistols
"Matched pair of Rhein Metall, breech-loading target pistols. These magnificent, exhibition-grade pistols are gold inlaid and relief engraved with European walnut forearms and fluted grips. The pistols have adjustable target rear sights and single set triggers. The fluted barrels are blued with relief-engraved floral and cross-hatched designs on a stippled background. Intricate, gold, filigree designs are inlaid on the muzzles, breeches, sides and tops of the barrels. The top of each barrel is gold inlaid with the maker's name and address: "RHEIN.METALLW. U.MASCH. FABR.ABT. SOMMERDA GEWEHRFABRIK." on an oval panel with gold inlaid borders. The breech, side plate, hammer and backstrap have deep, relief-engraved, scrollwork panels with gold inlaid borders. The trigger guard and breech lever are blued with relief engraving and gold inlaid filigree. The screws and barrel wedge escutcheons feature fine engraving. The pistols are complete with a European walnut, French-fitted, velvet lined case and accessories. The case is lined with green velvet and contains: (1) a pewter oil bottle, (2) screwdriver with ebony handle and engraved steel blade, (3) engraved steel socket with ebony handle and (4) twenty-eight round, silver-plated bullet block with engraved borders. A cleaning rod that was originally part of the set is missing. This magnificent set of exhibition grade pistols represents the finest turn-of-the-century German gun-making and engraving skill. This is a one-of-a-kind set of pistols that displays unmatched craftsmanship and detail."
