Hi Rick,
As you say, an unusual pistol. No decoration forward of the lock, but plenty behind it. Trigger plate I note is missing. Do you plan to replace it? I assume that the barrel is held in place...

Unfortunately not silver as far as I can tell. Looks like brass, or a brass alloy showing a very slight silvery hue. Anyway a nice and unusual flask IMHO. Will tag as Ottoman/Balkan unless something...

Hi Ward,
So I take it that in your view these were made to be used, rather than to sell as tourist items, which is really the question I was asking?
I have no doubt that they are not that old, as you...

Tourist or Real Deal?

These small brass/bronze "Indo/Persian" primer flasks seem relatively common, as they come up in auctions quite often. They have a screw plug at the "fat" end which would suggest that they are in...

I agree with Rick. I certainly would not like to be this close to a Tiger, even if the pole that this (I assume ) would be attached to was long.
