Flintlock Mediterranean Dag (blunderbuss) pistol. 11-1/4" barrel with flared muzzle of about 1-1/2", about 19-1/2" overall. Barrel is overlaid with silver ornamentation. Stock embellishment and furniture is possibly silver, with hallmarks on each major piece of furniture. Stock is extensively covered in cutout silver ornamentation which is engraved. Aside from a large missing piece from the left side of the forearm, only a couple small pieces of the ornamentation are absent. Barrel bands are nicely cutout with hearts. Trigger bow and ramrod are absent. Overall shows heavy wear with some old repairs, but is in sound condition. Metal parts are mostly a dark patina with a little light pitting on lock and barrel. Stock appears to be good with wear overall and some minor edge chips, may have been broken in the wrist, but well repaired long ago with brass cladding. Hammer has spring tension but does not hold at cock. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
