Description

This good Queen Anne style brass barrelled flintlock pistol is typical of the type that would be carried by travellers and mail men who expected their firearms to be exposed to weather.

The pistol is stamped "Ketland & Co" on the left hand side of the lock and "London" on the right hand side with some floriate engraving.

Ketland & Co was a firm of prolific gunmakers and had a workshop at Canon street, London circa 1785-1790. The pistol has a flat sided walnut butt. barrel and London proof mark to the underside of the frame. Oval silver escutcheon inlaid to the rear of the grip with the initials "JP"

The screw off 28 bore barrel is 5.5" long and a little longer than those usually encountered.

Overall in good condition and interesting to find the escutcheon with the original owners initials.

An interesting piece.
