The Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations, London 1851. No. 1611, Gastinne Renette, Gunsmith.
These pistols are clearly included within a selection of firearms by Gastinne Renette as the subject of an engraved advertisement of the period. The plate does not appear to have been included in the official catalogue but almost certainly was included either in one of the many other contemporary publications related to the exhibition or in the catalogue of another of the Continental exhibitions of the 'Industrial Arts'.
