Hi Dana

WOW!! That EARLY pistol is a beauty. And appears in wonderful condition. It must have been somewhat painful to have to re-ship it. LOL

Hi Bandook

WOW!! Another nice Coorg Matchlock with it's distinctive butt stock style.

Hi Stu

I was thinking that maybe the horn had a different cap originally, and the long, decorative spout added latter. But as you mentioned, there was a fair amount of crusted powder remaining...

Hi Stu

That's a nice, and interesting horn. Yes, the brass studs and the engraving on the brass spout piece seem to be from somewhere in North Africa.
My big curiosity is that brass piece and...

Hi again Ivo

That's a nice collection of Albanian pistols. And your new pistol fits in well. Notice the similar locks on all three. But with three different butt cap designs.
The top pistol has...

Hi Ivo

Congratulations. That is a very nice looking Albanian pistol. And appears in excellent condition. It was likely made in one of the many Balkan gun making centers for the Albanian market. ...

Hi Kubur

No, actually, I agree with you. I should have been more precise when I said Ottoman, and used Ottoman/Turkish. The semi-precious stones and the tiny tear shaped pieces of coral are...

Hi Kubur

Interesting find. I don't think it is Caucassian. They build their guns different.
Generically, I would say it was produced at one of the Balkan gun shops. Possibly Syrian (?) But my...

Thanks so much for adding to this Thread. Much agree with your comments. These Dzeferdars don't seem to come up for sale often. And they tend to bring a higher price. They are easily...

Hi Stu

After another look, it does appear the barrel has a small trace of silver wire inlay. That would be very common for this quality of barrel. And I can imagine other decoration. I'm pretty...

Hi Ivo

That's what I noticed in the photo. With the exception of the two holes, there doesn't seem to be any other evidence there was ever a trigger guard. Curious. At least the one larger hole...

LOL!!!

Hi Stu

Thanks. Again, I thought it would be a cool additional accessory for one of the Afghan belts. This is the first decorated one I've seen. Shows regular use.

Camel/Horse Whip

Hello All.

I recently picked this up at auction. Appears to be a camel or horse whip. I'm guessing camel. LOL It's very well made, and appears to be old. A few of the pearl inlays are missing,...

Hi Cerjak
