Small flintlock pistol, Queen Anne style (ca. 1750), marked Gloster / Jennings, with silver inlays and buttplate, screw barrel with cannon muzzle. 354 grams, 8" long. A beautiful little pistol, with very dark wooden stock, rust-free iron barrel and ornate silver-wire inlays and grotesque-mask buttplate, the maker name Jennings engraved under the lock with Gloster (probably for Gloucester, where it was made?) on the other side, Birmingham proof marks on bottom as cast in England (probably on behalf of another country), 11 mm bore, intact except for (stable) hairline crack on stock where it meets the receiver, trigger guard slightly loose, and the inlays about 15% missing. Pedigreed to the Mark Bir collection.
