Product Description

A very fine example of a late 18th century, large Marine Flintlock Blunderbuss with a brass cannon barrel and fittings.

The barrel is a combination octagonal to round shape, mildly flared at the muzzle. The iron lock plate has a faint date of 17.. and is engraved Mra Arm. di Brescia. The style is definitely 18th century and the brass fittings have been engraved and moulded with grotesque heads. The hammer has a heart-shaped cut-out, reminiscent of French guns. The stock is made of walnut. Condition is good. The wood has had some old worm, but it has been treated and filled. The mechanism is working properly.

Brescia is a city and commune in the region of Lombardy in northern Italy. It has been famous for its makers of weapons. In 1797 it passed from Venetian control to become a vassal state of France. The French influence and the fact that it was purchased recently in France would date it to around 1797-1800.

Please note that as an antique black powder pistol, this gun does not require a licence to own in the UK (other countries’ rules may vary), unless it is intended to be fired.
