This attractive contemporary flintlock rifle is in the early Bucks County Pennsylvania style. The .45 caliber rifled 42" octagonal barrel is inscribed "N. Stephenson" on the top flat, towards the breech. The lock is flat with beveled edges. The engraved brass furniture is in the early Bucks County style and the rifle has a sliding tiger maple patchbox lid surrounded by inlaid brass and brass wire designs. The full-length figured maple stock is of classic early Bucks County form and is carved with proper relief designs around the lock, sideplate and barrel tang. There are relief scrolls in the Bucks/Northampton County style on both sides of the relief molded cheekpiece. The rifle has a nice patina and is well-aged. CONDITION: Functions properly showing little use throughout. A very attractive form with a nice period look to all patinas. DMG
