Highly figured root wood forestock with molded forend. Serpentine side plate terminates in a dragon head. CONDITION: Lock has staining and dirt, no serious pitting. All small parts appear original. Barrel in good condition with a grey patina. Brass furniture retains a pleasing mellow mustard patina. Lock functions properly and is in its original flintlock configuration. The root wood stock has an old repaired split at old ramrod pipe and a 1" splice at extreme tip of forend and minor imperfections as expected with this type of wood, a tight split on left side of wood from age and some added finish.
