Lovely diminutive Continental flintlock box lock pocket pistol. 1-1/4" long turn-off barrel of about .33 caliber bore, about 6" overall. Nicely engraved frame, triggerguard and frizzen; barrel with simple turned embellishment. Metal parts have a medium to dark patina overall with slight granular pitting. Nicely carved bulbous grip with floral scroll carving around barrel tang, border carving around bottom strap with projecting carved "teats". Wood shows expected wear from use with minor handling marks and a tiny crack by the frame on the left side. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
