A GOOD INDOPERSIAN MATCHLOCK MUSKET

About the piece


18th century. 45 1/2” barrel, .67 cal., with thickened breech, tapered through its length with stepped and swamped muzzle, showing contrasting damascus twist pattern throughout, and secured with its original 8 lashed hide bands. Integral block opened rear sight. Copper bead front sight. Elegant side plates with engraved leaf borders. Matchlock with recurved serpentine and cone shaped vent pick holder. The pan with its swivel cover intact. Wood full stock unusually made in one piece rather that spliced as invariable encountered. A good quality example in exceptional preservation for these with the delicate edges of the barrel, channel intact and original securing lash. Best for its type that we have encountered.
