Jonathan Stanton is recorded as working between 1758 and 1767 in London, and his maker's mark is listed in "Der Stoeckel". Georgian pistols of this type were used by both British and American officers during the French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War. The round tapered barrel is marked on top "LONDON" surrounded by a border terminating in a teardrop, Stanton's maker mark of "IP" below a fleur-de-lis as well as London proof and view marks "(Crown) / CP" "(Crown) / V" are on the left side of the breech. Tang is engraved with scrolls. Lock signed "STANTON" in center. Swan neck cock. Brass tipped wooden ramrod retained by single reinforced ferrule with turning. Brass sideplate, trigger guard and pommel cap with grotesque mask and decorated stirrups. Trigger guard engraved with floral on the bow and has a trifed finial. Walnut stock of classic Georgian form. CONDITION: Very good. Iron with minor areas of scattered freckling. A European style cleaning has obliterated part of the "LONDON" signature on barrel and some of the finer engraving details including some of Stanton's signature on lock. Brass has acquired a pleasing mustard patina. Wood is very good with scattered storage marks. Lock is in its original flintlock configuration and works properly. DMG
