This fine brass and silver mounted Kentucky pistol features an octagonal iron barrel with front blade sight of German silver and small notched rear sight. Flat lockplate marked in center "T./KETLAND/& Co." and decorated with an engraved single line border. Brass triggerguard features an oval shaped silver overlay engraved with a detailed border, silver wrist escutcheon engraved "en suite". Un-engraved silver buttcap and brass sideplate, ramrod ferrules, and nosecap. Figured maple stock of unusual form, featuring a relief-carved shell behind the barrel tang and relief panels around lock and sideplate, both terminating with an arrow at the back. Complete with original hickory ramrod with iron worm. CONDITION: Very good, barrel and lock retain a spotted grey patina, lock appears to be in original flintlock configuration. Stock has a later coat of finish added and a repaired break at wrist. One piece between lock and barrel tang has been professionally replaced. Otherwise, a beautiful pistol with nice form and a great homogeneous look. The form and the silver overlay on the triggerguard suggest southern origin, as well as the carving around the tang.
