Default Miquelet Percussion Pistol for ID and Comment

Just acquired this nice little pistol. Barrel length approx 5" (13cm) with a smooth bore of approx 17mm. Overall approx 25cm.
There are no proof marks of any sort, but 17 is stamped on the underside of the barrel. The barrel bore has a definite chamber for powder and a "flange" above that, which would seat the ball. The miquelet lock is in good functioning order.
I am leaning towards Spanish origin but could be quite wrong.
All comments welcome.
