William IV Walking Stick Rifle

second quarter 19th century, the carved mahogany ring handle decorated with brass nailheads and inlaid pewter plate, the shaft a steel muzzle-loading percussion cap rifle.
l. 32-5/8"

Provenance: Estate of John Elliot Bradshaw, Houston, Texas.


In overall good condition. The metal elements exhibit wear and some pitting. The wooden handle exhibits wear, and some modern glue is apparent where the handle meets the steel shaft. There are about four small brass nailheads missing. The spring on the hammer engages as the hammer is pulled back and it clicks into place. Pulling on the trigger releases the hammer.
