Middle-Eastern Miquelet Blunderbuss Pistol

1 3/8" flared muzzle with 9 1/8" iron Damascus patterned barrel with engraved patterns . Very well made miquelet lock with grooved frizzen and extremely strong mainspring. Ball trigger. Highly decorated stock with brass and bone inlays. A really exceptional example of a "knee pistol".


Very fine, wonderful untouched condition. Mechanically functional. A superb example of 19th century Islamic weapon, and not a decorator piece made for the tourist trade.

Estimate: $1,000 - $1,500
Price Realized Including Buyer's Premium
