Original 19th Century Ottoman Flintlock Holster Pistol with Engraved Stock Circa 1810 - 1820

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This comes from an old U.S. Collection formed in the 1950's and 1960's that we have just received. Basically untouched from 50 years in storage, this is a good example of Islamic Ottoman work of the early 19th century. Turkey was emerging and was starting to be influenced by the West, which combined western and eastern fashions together.

This fine flintlock pistol has a hand engraved wood stock with iron mounts. The Butt Cap is very nicely decorated with added silver inlay including Crescent Moons and Stars. Copying the western Style, the pistol displays a "faux" ramrod which is not intended for use. The actual ramrod was usually carried on a leather thong carried around the neck, so that it could not be dropped during reloading on horseback.

The pistol is 16 1/2" in overall length, with an 11" barrel, and the iron mounts are all engraved with line decoration. There is also a proof mark on the side of the barrel.

Fully cleaned and ready for display.
