    English Boxlock Flintlock Pocket Pistol With 1¾" Triangular Snap Bayonet Circa 1790. Frame and barrel all brass with engraved floral and geometric decoration, iron trigger guard with engraved star, approximately .50 caliber. Bayonet works perfectly with spring loaded button on the side for release. Iron frame sliding safety, that engages a small hole on the face of the frizzen, has a small piece broken off the right side but still works perfectly, otherwise the gun is complete and original in every respect. One piece wood grip marked on the right side with large die stamped "08". Overall excellent with nice mellow patina on wood and metal. An intriguing and impressive little pistol.
