Hooked breech and double triggers. Twin right and left locks with flat banana lock plates with beveled edges, both unmarked. American brass furniture showing French influence. Heavy brass trigger guard with floral engraving on bow and terminating at both tangs with acorn finials. Crescent brass buttplate with engraved tang terminating in a heavy and bold acorn finial. Brass ramrod ferrules and noseband. There is a piece of inlaid trade silver in front of trigger guard, around the finial and one above the cheekpiece. Small engraved silver oval shaped and engraved wrist escutcheon. Highly figured tiger maple stock with Roman nose buttstock profile. Relief molded cheek piece on left side. Barrels and locks retain a pleasing dark patina, both locks are in original flintlock configuration and function properly. Brass and silver retain dark pleasing patinas.
