a high quality flintlock pistol, made circa 1720 -1760,  it is not marked but very similar to pistols made by Zellner, Salzburg in Austria. The caliber is .50 smoothbore, the barrel is 10" part round - part octagonal. The pistol is highly decorated with gilded brass mounts showing figures, stand of Arms and  the Austrian two-headed eagle, full stocked and nicely carved, original ramrod with horn-tipped ramrod. Lock and hammer are fully and deeply engraved, and it is in perfect working order. With very minor traces of usage in excellent condition.
A very eye-catching and early pistol     $5,500.
