Large caliber single barrel pistol imported from an unknown arms maker, probably Belgian or French.  In good overall condition, the muzzle-loading cap and ball pistol measures 9” long and has a 54 caliber, rifled, round steel barrel fitted to a flat iron frame with a fold down trigger. Grips, with a ‘bag’ profile, feature a finely checkered, one-piece walnut handle that has an oval silver medallion on the grip and at the pommel.  Checkering has nice wear. Artifact is void of any maker’s marks save for various proof marks on the frame and barrel.  Frame, hammer, and pommel are engraved with a floral motif.  Mechanically tight and strong. All exterior metal surfaces on this weapon have been cleaned and show a mellow gray patina, along with scattered light scratches and wear.

DISCLAIMER: All firearms are sold as collector's items only - we do not accept responsibility as to the shooting safety or reliability of any antique firearm. All firearms are described as accurately as possible, given the restraints of a catalog listing length. We want satisfied customers & often "under" describe the weapons. Any city or state regulations regarding owning antique firearms are the responsibility of the purchaser. All firearms are "mechanically perfect" unless noted, but again, are NOT warranted as safe to fire.
