    Mid 19th Century European Percussion Blunderbuss 30 1/2" overall with 15 3/4" Belgian proofed, brass cannon turned, barrel. Muzzle is flattened and elongated resulting in a bore of 1 7/8" X 2 1/2". Decoratively engraved back action lock with the brass furniture showing similar engraving. Iron is smooth with dark patina, brass also with nice dark untouched patina. The walnut stock, which retains much of the original varnish and is quite crisp, is finely carved on the underside with the likeness of a boar's head.

A most unusual blunderbuss from the mid 19th century in superior condition.
