ORNATE Antique MEDITERANEAN/OTTOMAN Flintlock Martial Pistol Beautiful Late-18th / Early 19th Century Pistol
ORNATE Antique MEDITERANEAN/OTTOMAN Flintlock Martial Pistol
Beautiful Late-18th / Early 19th Century Pistol
Here we present an antique Mediterranean/Ottoman Style Flintlock Horse Pistol, made circa the end of the 18th century. Pistols like these were commonly used around the Mediterranean in the 18th and early 19th Centuries. This pistol was made in Europe, possibly Italy. The aesthetic, both in form and décor, are European, though there are engravings throughout that are indicative of Ottoman ownership.
This would have been like those weapons carried by Tripolitan pirates when the young United States sent the Marines to take care of them. This is a large pistol used for fighting but it was also a status symbol with its engravings in the stock and the engraved barrel.
The overall condition is good. Strong action. The bore is in good shape for its age. Throughout, the Stock/grip is in good shape and is missing a chip on the left side of the grip. This example is uniquely etched and has many fine features that catch the eye.
Own the original! This is a legitimate antique and not a reproduction.
Barrel is 11-1/2 inches.
Caliber: .60 Flintlock
