Original 19th Century Belgian Napoleonic Era Sea Service Flintlock Pistol - Circa 1814

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This pistol is somewhat unusual in that this flintlock pistol may have been an Officer's Private Purchase item. It is clearly a better quality pistol than those normally encountered, and it is fitted with a steel ramrod supported by brass ferrules.

The butt is not fitted with a lanyard ring, but instead with an oval brass plate. It also has a small silver escutcheon on the rear of the grip, behind the barrel tang.  All of this indicates this was never intended for a regular seaman to carry aloft, but rather to be an Officer's sidearm.

At the time, Belgium produced firearms mostly for other countries, so this example does not have any markings except for a CROWN / ON on the lock plate by the pan, which is most likely an inspector's mark.

This example is in excellent condition, fully cleaned and ready to display.
