This is a 1/3 scale cased pair of ivory stocked Dutch Maastrich pistols by the late Stanley Blashak of Pennsylvania.
Each pistol measures 8" long overall with 4 7/8" long part round part octagon smoothbore barrel of .19 caliber.
Beautiful and ornately hand carved ivory one piece stocks, the butt of which depict the helmeted head of a warrior.
The barrels and lock assemblies are steel finished in the white, and modestly but expertly engraved. Tghe locks feature
both half and full cock. The furniture is silver, again modestly but expertly engraved, and shows just enough tarnish
that you know that it is in fact silver. Ivory ramrods. Cased together in a great walnut hinged top casing with
rotating slide latch. The interior French fit and lined in black velour, which makes for a marvelous contrast!
The lone accessory included is an ivory powder flask with ivory violin peg stopper and silver mountings. A gorgeous
set by a well respected maker. This piece was made when Stanley was in his prime, and the workmanship is just outstanding.
Very seldom offered for sale.

This is an antique percussion
watch key pistol by an unknown maker, complete with the original antique pocket watch that it came with! 1 13/16"
long overall with a 3/4" square bored barrel that fits the square winding shaft under the back cover of the pocket watch.
This is the most ornate one of these I have ever seen, and features a blue finish with gold and platinum inlays on the barrel,
platinum inlays on the backstrap, a platinum bird on the right side of the frame, and a platinum deer on the left side of
the frame. One piece beautifully aged ivory grips with carving on both sides near the frame, and a platinum oval inset
into the bottom of the grip. The pistol has both half and full cock, and the trigger has a ring where the pistol may
be attached to a watch chain as a watch fob. Wonderful condition, the blue turning patina brown in places. Fully
functional, and with the proper percussion caps, this pistol will shoot.
The watch 1 15/16" in diameter and about 9/16" thick. It has a push
button on the stem to release the back cover. The front cover has an extended tab where it can be opened. The
inside of the rear cover has several hallmarks. The lion hallmark means it is sterling silver and was made in London.
The hallmark below and to the right means it was made in 1855, the JJ hallmark means it was made by John Jacob. The
other hallmark I do not know what it means. The rear cover is also serial numbered 111090, with the third 1 and the
0 almost on top of each other. When wound, the watch runs, but does not keep good time, so will need to be serviced
if you want it to keep proper time.
really neat set!

This is in my opinion a period miniature wheellock
pistol from the late 1500's to early 1600's. I showed it to noted firearms expert Michael Zomber at the Tulsa Gun Show
this past November. His comment was "It has the look of great age and could be period". No maker markings
visible. 4" long overall with a 2 3/8" barrel of .152 caliber. The barrel is bored through to the touch
hole. Steel lock assembly, barrel, triggerguard, trigger, and screws, with copper furniture. Very unusual
burl walnut one piece stock. I have never seen another wood stocked miniature wheellock pistol. All the ones I
have ever seen were either metal or ivory stocked. The hammer is nicely engraved. The hammer spring with some
nice filework. Ebony ramrod with copper tip. As is normal for many true antique miniatures that were meant to
shoot, the trigger on this miniature extends through the triggerguard so it would be easy to shoot. There is a loop
on the left side for a necklace attachment. Miniature wheellock pistol were often worn by high ranking women or men
as jewelry. The square shaft where you would use a key to wind the mechanism is somewhat rounded off. The
key is included and fits both the winder shaft and the top jaw of the hammer. The steel parts are a smooth gray/brown
patina with very little if any visible pitting. The stock is dark, and shows some very minor repairs, especially around
the forward barrel pin. I have removed the lock, and the lock spring cover, and they look very old if not period to
me. Period miniature wheellocks are the ultimate in rarity, desirability, and collectability!
