Description
United Kingdom - Beau et fort Tromblon à silex - 18 ème siècle - Hunting - Flintlock - Blunderbuss
Very good

Lovely, large flintlock musket, period 18th century, lock and hammer engraved with a floral motif, English hallmark on the lock ‘W mounted with a royal crown’. All the mechanisms - hammer, trigger, cylinder - work perfectly, powerful percussion, Liege hallmark on the large barrel with flat then rounded sides, musket mouth, the barrel is very thick, which attests to the quality of the build, to be able to fit the strong load and powerful firing. The barrel is not thin like most of the bad quality Spanish or Arab type muskets. Lovely ring on the barrel, large flower pattern, calibre at mouth 65 mm.

lovely well-preserved weapon, from an attic, dusty, to be cleaned.
