A very early British Cavalry or Sea Service pistol, dating to the first quarter of the 18th century or early second quarter, by a rarely- found maker, "WM BRAZIER" who began his career in 1702 as an apprentice in London. The "11 1/2" long, baluster-breeched barrel has the early proof marks and the first initial "W", (the "B" not as legible) and has been cleaned at one time, showing minor surface etching, as is the same with the original flint lock. The "W" is hidden beneath the cock (at full rest), and this lock shows the transition from a three-screw lock to a two-screw lock. The brass mountings are intact, having been lightly polished at one time. The trigger guard is correctly surface-mounted on the walnut stock, which has an old varnish surface. The butt cap area shows some chipping where wood shrinkage occurred. Otherwise this rare, early "W.BRAZIER" pistol is complete including a "period" ramrod.
