The lock inscription reads Amil I Achmed Sahib Ismael Agaha, work of Ahmed, the owner is Ismael Agaha. In the first half of the 19th century, large quantities of pistols were manufactured in Prizren, now a Kosovan city and district, for export to Turkey, Egypt, Asia Minor, Persia and India. It is believed they were exchanged for leather and gold, in some instance the weight of a pistol was set against the weight of gold paid.
