1800 Brass Mounted Pistol

High quality all-brass mounted flintlock pistol by Green & Co., “No1 Ludgate Hill London”, circa approx. 1800. The pistol measures approx. 11-1/2” overall with 6-1/2” two-stage brass barrel of approx. .54 caliber smoothbore. The pistol shows a brass lockplate with brass mounts and is full stocked in good quality walnut showing flattened edges to the grip. The condition is fine to nearly excellent showing just some minor handling and aging, one small repair at the left front of forend where a sliver of wood is glued back and is almost imperceptible. The original topjaw, screw, and parts are retained. The pistol is nicely signed and border engraved. An original to the period ramrod is included.
