17th Century Style Nuremburg Wheel Lock Musket (AL3622)

Product Description

17th Century Style Nuremburg Wheel Lock Musket with Lavish Figural Inlay. Splendid work of art wheel lock musket, mounted with 16th century Ottoman barrel. Barrel of a large bore, elaborately inlaid with heavy silver in arabesques, and exhibiting superb Damascus pattern. Silver maker’s stamp in the recess towards the breech. Many German guns were remounted with barrels from Ottoman guns captured at the siege of Vienna. The white stag horn inlay is unusually elaborate throughout the butt stock and forend, depicting fanciful animals, mythological dragons, and winged angels blowing trumpets. Cheek piece inlay features a Roman hero surrounded by trumpet blowing putti and other figures. Patchbox is decorated en suite and is original to the gun, featuring angels, goats, and satyrs. Lock is relief chiseled and engraved with recumbent figure resting after a hunt. Wheel lock is a piece of art. This gun was out of the Clay Bedford collection, and a very similar gun can be found in the John Rothschild collection at the Waddesdon Manor. Truly a spectacular piece!
