    QUALITY, 19th CENTURY, ENGLISH TOLL KEEPER’S Percussion Blunderbuss By Allport With Muzzle Rim Engraved ‘PAY THE TOLL No. 3’ & Ram Rod. Sn 14457 - 14457

    There were several Gun Smiths named Allport working in both London & the provinces during the 19th Century. This an excellent Blunderbuss by Allport. This short Blunderbuss was obviously issued to a Road or Bridge toll keeper for self protection against highway men attempting to steel revenue and to ‘encourage’ reluctant travellers to pay their tolls. The short size would allow the toll keeper to conceal the weapon in their small toll booth / cabin or on their person, under an overcoat or duster. Our example is 28 ¾” overall length overall with a 13 ½” long steel cannon barrel stepped to octagonal towards the breech and with massive flared muzzle. The muzzle opening is 1 ½” diameter. Interestingly the rim of the barrel at the muzzle is contemporarily engraved with the demand ‘PAY THE TOLL’ and ‘No. 3’ either a weapon number or toll booth number. It has a heavy steel Dolphin hammer and foliate engraved action plate. The plate is signed by the maker ‘Allport’. It has a walnut full stock, steel trigger guard with acanthus bud finial, ram rod mount and butt plate. It has its original wood ramrod with brass end cap. The weapon cocks and dry fires with a strong action. The price for this quality Blunderbuss which is an interesting conversation piece includes UK delivery. NB As an antique percussion weapon no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a private collection or display. Sn 14457
