Original French Silver Mounted Flintlock Pistol made for the Ottoman Empire Market Circa 1795
Original Item: Only One Available. Unsigned but beautifully made with heavy Silver mounts, this flintlock pistol is almost certainly of French manufacture. The silver pommel is encrusted with deeply embossed Stands of Arms, the trigger guard, side plate and ram rod pipes are also of silver. The 10" barrel is also decorated in silver with copper banding and the lock plate also has silver overlays making this an extremely attractive pistol. The walnut stock bears much of its original copper wire inlay although it is absent on the bottom of the pistol, and towards the muzzle. However the inlay channels can still be seen, and are most attractive on this 17 inch pistol.
Dating from the time of Napoleon Bonaparte, circa 1795-1800, this was a period of French expansion of the Eastern Mediterranean.
Beautifully cleaned, ready to display, a fine French pistol.
