A finely silver wire decorated 20-bore Turkish/ Ottoman percussion holster pistol. Overall length approx 18.1/2 in., steel barrel approx. 11.3/4 in.  The steel barrel is octagonal at the breach bgoing into a slightly flared round barrel at the mussel, to a brown/ grey patina with worn floral decoration and slight pittingparticularly around the nipple.  The lock would appear to be French in origin and very tight/ crisp with floral decoration throughout and again to a brown/ grey patina. The mock steel ramrod is retained by two steel pipes, the trigger and trigger-guard are also of steel as it the plain sideplate and all the other steel furniture is to a brown/ grey patina.  The butt cap appears to be silver plated with brass showing throgh at rubbed points of the decoration.  The wooden fullstock is profusely decorated with swirls of silver wire throughout.  There is a small slither of wood let in at the mussle as a repair, a slight loss silver wire if a few places and a slight repair at the butt, otherwise in good overall condition commensurate with its age.  Additional information and photographs on request
