DUTCH Delft Nederlandse Antique FLINTLOCK Pistol
.70 Caliber Naval Pistol Made Circa Early 1800s in Liege
Here we present an antique Dutch Flintlock Pistol, made circa the 1830s in Liege. Today we know that Liege is a city in Belgium, perhaps most famous for its centuries of arms manufacture; but at this time, Belgium was not yet independent, and was a parcel of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands until recognized in 1839. Revolution and the push for independence began in earnest in 1830.
This pistol features a large .70 caliber bore, typical of a military small arm of the period. The pommel is a flat one with a lanyard ring. There is a crowned “DN” for Delft Nederlandse on the lock. No provision for a ramrod was made as the user carried one secured to his belt. This would have been one of the last large, smooth bore flintlock pistols to be made for official service before pistols in the percussion firing system were introduced and adopted.
The overall condition is good. The stock has been repaired. The bore is smooth and dark. The action remains strong and functional.
