Details

A 40 BORE PERCUSSION HIGHLAND OFFICERS DRESS PISTOL FORMED ENTIRELY OF STEEL, BY MORTIMER, BIRMINGHAM PROOF MARKS, CIRCA 1840, with three-stage barrel divided by slender raised bands, the muzzle engraved with neo-gothic arches, a broad panel of Celtic scrollwork over the median, the breech with a spray of foliage and incorporating a pierced platinum plug, signed lock engraved with sprays of thistle flowers and foliage, full stock encrusted with engraved silver thistle flowers, foliage and wriggle work against a hatched ground on the fore-end, engraved with scrollwork en suite with the median beneath the lock, ramshorn butt numbered 107 on the inside, engraved with further scrollwork, palmettes and a silver-encrusted sphinx on each side, the spine with matching designs and with a silver escutcheon with the owners crest, a hand grasping a cutlass, engraved silver button trigger and pricker, the latter formed as a thistle head, blued iron belt hook, and brass-tipped iron ramrod. Barrel length 18cm, overall length 29cm. The crest is perhaps that of Barwis or Brady. The similarity with the pistol in the following lot makes an attribution to Thomas Elsworth Mortimer likely. The use of pierced platinum plugs ceased in general use by the mid-19th century.
