Cock and lock engraved with florals and floral lined border. Bag grip with checkering at wrist. Vacant silver escutcheon thumbpiece. CONDITION: Good. metal has been cleaned in the European fashion over some old oxidation. One reinforcing ramrod ferrule chipped at mouth. Wood has been gently cleaned and is now shy to metal in a few places and has some softness at sharp edges. One screw at left side of hooked breech has been molested.
