~ Exquisite Tower India Pattern Brown Bess Musket By Egg ~
Here we have a beautiful Brown Bess of the India pattern musket in incredible condition.
The musket is made of a varnished hardwood with polished brass fittings and a steel barrel and workings. The lock and pan are a more elaborate mechanism than on many period firearms and indicates a higher quality than many used in the King's army leading me to believe this is a private purchase flintlock for an officer.
This pattern can be dated to before 1808 due to the lack of the reinforced mechanism.
The bayonet bears the mark of Durs Egg, one of the most famous gunsmiths working out of Great Britain.
