firearms

I cover this area from mid-18th century to late-19th century, from flintlock to early cartridge guns. For me this is where hobby and profession meet, as I'm a black powder enthusiast (ex-fencer)! My particular interest is in American and British revolvers of the percussion era and, to a more general extent, in British and European service handguns from the 19th century. Good reference books include: English pistols and revolvers by J N George; Howard Blackmore's book on English service firearms of the 18th & 19th century. Museums with important collections include: the Royal Armouries, Leeds; the Wallace Collection, Manchester Square, London W1; Musee de l'Armee, Paris; the Metropolitan Museum, New York; Heeresgeschichtliches Museum, Vienna; and various other museums in European capitals.

Here is a selection of militaria from this category:

militaria item Balkan cartridge box (Palaska), Ottoman era
- Bosnian
This is a classic Balkan cartridge box of the early 19th century, probably made in Bosnia Herzegovina, carried not only by Muslims, but also by Greek Christians in their war of independence against the Ottoman Empire. The motifs on this particular example would suggest Muslim ownership, with the waxing crescent present throughout the design.

militaria item Musketeer's flask
- German
This is the classic infantry flask of the 30 Years War (1618-48). These flasks were used by both sides throughout the conflict in conjunction with the matchlock muskets of the period. The mounts are iron, the body is cow horn and the engraving is typical floral work of the period.

militaria item Horse pistol by Lacy & Co of London
- British
This service-style weapon would have been privately made for an officer and have taken the standard paper pistol cartridge of the day. Typically, it would have been carried in the wars in India throughout the 1830s and beyond, Lacy at one point being contractors to both the East India Company and the British government.

Incredibly, I received your shipment today. Super fast delivery, I was expecting it on Saturday. The helmet was, as you said, 100%. The side cap is excellent also...
