Damascus steel octagonal barrel with muzzle slightly swamped, and inlaid with delicate koftgari wire work at muzzle and breech. A section of breech displays Arabic calligraphy, and is accompanied by a poincon. Extremely clever lock with rotatable pan and nipple for percussion use, while cock has combination flint and nipple hammer. Lock is lightly engraved with borders and florals. Barrel retained by four silver bands. Ramrod, likely the original, feeds directly into the full length stock through an ivory nosepiece decorated with mosaic pins. Root walnut stock with sling loops feeding through ivory escutcheons decorated with mosaic pins. Lock retaining screw en suite with ivory escutcheon and deocrated with pins. Area behind rear sight decorated with mother of pearl inlays. Iron tang and trigger guard with pineapple finial. Rear of stock with a stripe made of mother of pearl, ivory, and darkwood. Sling made of woven cloth in gold, green and purple. CONDITION: Very good. Metal has some spotting throughout but appears to be largely untouched as wirework is still largely in place. Stock has several cracks and splice repairs throughout with normal handling marks. Rear of stock is a different wood and may be a later addition to add to length of pull. Action works appropriately when operated by hand, including the conversion system, bore is very good. This is a scarce example of a well decorated torador with an unusual and interesting lock. EW
