Zacharias Herold, recorded as gunsmith in Dresden between 1586 and 1618. In 1588, he delivered muskets to the armoury and in 1590 carbines to the arsenal. He was gunsmith to the court from 1603 until 1610 and in 1618 became guild master.

Unlike the numerous puffers manufactured for enlisted men of the lifeguard, of which more than 200 specimens have been preserved, the high-quality officers‘ version was produced in small numbers. Including the specimens preserved in Dresden only about a dozen of these pistols are known to exist.
