Large cavalry or horse flintlock pistol:
Total length: 49 cm
Barrel length: 31 cm
Calibre: 16 mm
Large German (Holy Roman Empire) or Prussian officer’s pistol, known as a horse pistol, circa 1700-1730.
Round barrel, with flat sections at the bolt, beautiful engravings, slightly flared.
Lock with swan-necked hammer, flat-bodied, finely engraved.
Chiselled iron fittings.
Walnut wood trim, partly carved, decorated with inlays of silver filigree.
On this model there is no functional rod, but a small decorative rod (originally there was no recess under the length of the barrel).
Mechanism in very good condition, complete and functional, very firm springs.
The pistol is in a very nicely preserved condition.
Please note: some very discreet repairs to the wood on the front of the barrel length.
See the pictures; I am happy to answer your questions.
Good luck at auction.
