    ~ 18th Century Colonial Presentation Blunderbuss ~


    The blunderbuss is a colonial Sri Lanka highly decorated presentation piece most probably presented to an English official.

    The muzzle of the barrel is engraved with a representation of the Hindu god Skanda (in the Śrī Gajavāhana or Śrī Subrahmanya postures).

    The lower end of the barrel is engraved in relief with religious symbols.

    The hammer bears the British drums and standards in relief and the pan has been gold plated.

    The trigger guard and its fittings are shaped and decorated in the traditional English firearm design pattern of the day with chequered engravings and pineapple finial.

    The brass plate opposite the lock plate is decorated with relief floral engravings.

    The wooden stock is also decorated with floral brass inlays and the butt stock is shaped as a miniature Brown Bess stock ending with a steel plate.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The barrel is 8 inches (20.5 cm) long and the overall length of the piece is 17 inches (43 cm).

    The blunderbuss weighs 920 grams.

    ~ Condition ~

    The piece is in good condition for its age.

    The inside of the bore is rusty and cannot be used to shoot anymore.

    The exterior of the metalwork is very well preserved and clean, as seen in the pictures.

    The mechanism can be cocked and released.

    The woodwork remains undamaged except two sections where minor repairs were done and another section on the right side where the brass inlay wire is missing.

    The pan lost some of its gold plating.

    The brass plate opposite to the lockplate is cracked nearby the rear screw.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £18 or it can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
