Thank you again for your lead towards Johann Philipp von Lamberg.
I was wondering if the orb like symbol could be that of the Globus Cruciger, the catholic symbol for a powerfull ruler both spiritually and earthly?
It is a variation on the ussual orb, missing a cross but with a flame on top (holy spirit?)
I ask because we know that Johann Philipp went to Warsaw in 1697 as imperial minister, where he was the king of Augsburg. In 1699 he received the office of an Imperial commissary.
So a man of high stature, making for an even more precise date of this gun if it can be connected to the orb.
