Yasou Eftihis,

This is a Serbian type we rarely see. And you're right, it does derive from the form you show in your post. There were a few of these in more elaborate mounts in the Askeri Muzesi...

May have found its way to Palawan, but the work is Maguindanao, as Ian noted. Might show some intersting patterning on the blade.

Thanks, Fernando K, Udo and Peter.
I have been unable to find other metal work
with such motifs. What could be the connection
between the two, European heraldic and
New World indigenes?

A Neapolitan miquelet pistol

This pistol just came to light, wanted to share it with the forum.
Larger than most I've seen at 33 cm long. Approximately 80 cal.
The engraving is fine, and the motifs are very unusual. Dated...

The quality and degree of embellishment on the central band of the grip is generally a good indicator of age. This one is on the simple side and is probably not particularly old.

It's the maker's name. It reads, HAJI.

It's likely Tiflis (Tbilisi) work. Gonzoadler's dating of 1890-1920 is reasonable. However, 1920s-1930s is probably closer.
The grips are potentially...
