Superb silver embellished large flintlock snaphaunce pistol. 15-1/4" barrel of about .64 caliber bore, about 22-1/2" overall. Barrel is engraved with metal overlay, lock is nicely overlaid with engraved silver, only missing, barrel has two superbly crafted silver bands, as is the butt cap. Triggerguard has gold embellishment of scrolls and geometric patterns. Stock is intricately inlaid with silver wire designs of floral, geometric, and mamaluke swords. Wood is very good, showing light wear and use overall with some minor chipping to the edges at the butt and some minor slivering in the ramrod channel. Mechanically good except not equipped with half cock, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
