Description: Rifled older octagonal barrel, circa 1650, 14.5 mm calibre, slightly swamped near the muzzle, somewhat matt bore with good rifling. The upper side of the barrel with brass front sight and fixed rear sight, profusely covered with figurative iron chiselling. Sparsely engraved flintlock, the domed lock plate signed, set rigger. Slender walnut stock with silver furniture and patch-box. Wooden ramrod with silver tip. Lock plate finely pitted, lock mechanism defective. Stock somewhat knocked, fine crack on the left of the butt and on the ramrod holder. Length 70 cm. The fine iron chiselling on the barrel shows four allegorical figures, an angel, a bird (eagle/dove?) as well as two female figures above the coat of arms of the aristocratic Janorinsky family from Cieszyn. For the history of this extraordinary weapon cf. Lander, "Adelsbüchse" in: DWJ 06/16, p. 76ff.
