Flintlock Rifle

Place of Origin: DECCAN / INDIA

Overall: 66" Inches

Reference: 261

Status: Sold

Full Description:

A rare 19th century Indian rifle with unusual features, this fine piece is fitted with a high quality Damascus twist barrel and the stock is profusely inlaid with silver. The wide butt is reminiscent of Ottoman guns although the silver inlay is typical of Indian design—a checkered band providing further decoration and ease of grip. The lock is of English manufacture. The barrel has been decorated at the breech with repeating gold patterns and the muzzle is fluted and gilded. Elaborate silver barrel bands again suggest influence from the Ottoman Empire.
