A very ornately inlaid, contemporary copy of a 16th Century wheellock pistol with an original lock plate. It is a large, walnut stocked pistol with a ball butt, and a high relief iron barrel, featuring an open mouth dragon at the muzzle. The pistol still retains its original ramrod. The engraved inlays are exquisite, and executed with a very high degree of skill and craftsmanship. There are vines, flowers, dragons, nudes, castles, villages and several stone bridges or archways. We believe this pistol was made by George Terry, in the 1960’s, but we can not confirm this. The ball butt is inscribed “K55C”, and the lock plate is hallmarked, but we are unable to tell you what they mean.
