Thomas Green is listed as working between 1680-1720 making flintlock holster pistols and flintlock blunderbusses. He had a government commission making flintlock military musket with dog locks in London. This pistol has a two-stage 8" round .62 caliber smoothbore barrel with private view and proof marks, as well as a maker's cartouche. The banana lockplate has a round face and double-line borders, as well as an unbridled pan. The center is engraved "T. GREEN". Early turned steel ramrod ferrules, iron pommel cap, engraved on the bottom with a flower, early trigger guard terminating in a stylized Fleur-de-Lis finial. Symmetrical wrist escutcheon engraved with the initials "W.R." and a serpentine sideplate terminating in the back with a foliate motif. The burl stock is carved with relief designs around the barrel tang, lock, sideplate, and entry ferrule. The wooden ramrod has an iron tip and appears to be original. CONDITION: Barrel lock and all iron mounts have been polished bright in the European fashion. Lock is in its original flintlock configuration and functions well. Barrel markings are partially visible, lock markings are excellent. Pistol has been shortened a few inches during its period of use and the stock shows some age cracks, separation, and minor areas filled around pins. A very attractive and early English pistol. DMG
