    SUPERB, RARE, Late 19th Century Japanese Samurai 32 Bore Matchlock Musket With Cannon Barrel, Ornate Silver & Copper Inlay, Brass Fittings & Signed Barrel. Sn 14614 - 14614

    The matchlock was the first mechanism, or "lock" invented to facilitate the firing of a hand-held firearm. This design removed the need to lower by hand a lit match into the weapon's flash pan and made it possible to have both hands free to keep a firm grip on the weapon at the moment of firing, and, more importantly, to keep both eyes on the target. These pieces were made through to the late 19th Century under Tokugawa Licence as special orders for Samurai families who needed to maintain their status in parades that took place during annual festivals. This Japanese matchlock made in the late 19th century has a fully functioning brass action and ornate fittings with silver inlay. It has a 106cm long blued octagonal barrel with cannon muzzle which is 13.4mm diameter at the muzzle opening (approx. 32 Bore). The smooth bore is clean. It has a blade fore sight and block rear sight. It measures 135cm overall length. It has a full hard wood stock and original bamboo ram rod. The metal and wood has ornate brass fittings with silver and copper inlay. The barrel is inlaid with a sinuous dragon over mountain ranges design in copper and brass. The stock has a silver ‘mon’ family badge pinned to the wood. It has a brass serpentine, trigger guard, button trigger and is inlaid in brass with chrysanthemum heads, the underside with cloud bands. The action correctly moves the 'quick match' to the powder pan. There are no visible Japanese gunsmith or family signatures on the exterior of this piece but the underside of the barrel is signed with Japanese script signatures most likely to the Gunsmith and family who commissioned the piece. The price for this highly desirable, rare matchlock worthy of further research regarding the signature includes UK delivery. NB As an antique matchlock musket no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 14614
