Raised Carved Hudson Valley Flintlock Fowler
10/25/2011 - Historic Firearms & Historic Militaria
.79 caliber, 52" barrel. Thick barrel with flared muzzle made to shoot a musket ball as well as shot. Long oval blade sight. Two faint (possibly Dutch) proof marks are obscured under old patina. Dutch styled furniture and locks. Raised carving around the lock and sideplate features a rear teardrop lobe and a forward arrowhead. Firearm is further embellished with raised carved three-fold floral devices at the entry pipe in front of the triggerguard and at the breech tang. Raised scalloped moldings border the rear of the barrel and the entire ramrod channel. Ca 1750.

Excellent original surface. The firearm has never been cleaned or altered. Minor old wood losses alongside the barrel. The front tip of the brass front trigger-guard tang has long been missing. Ramrod's thimble missing as well.
