A pretty side hammer Flintlock pocket pistol by Mabson and Labron with octagonal turnoff approximately 40 bore barrel, reinforced swing neck cock, fine checkered butt with silver escutcheon and a silver mask repousse to the butt. The pistol is well engraved throughout with the name of the makers to the left-hand panel. Birmingham proof. NVN.
Condition: the whole pistol is crisp with little use and it retains considerable hardening colour to the lock itself and the cock, frizzen and springs. The twisted barrel is faded but crisp with few marks. The gun is contained within a green baize lined mahogany case which is modern but of good quality together with a flask, mould, and cleaning rod and barrel turnoff tool.
