wood (plant material), l 52cm. More details

Over the course of the 17th century Maastricht became an important production centre for luxury firearms, rivalling Utrecht and Amsterdam. The gunmakers’ shops in the Spilstraat were the best place to acquire an exclusive firearm until well into the 18th century. Oger Leblan had his premises there. The rather exuberant style of these weapons reflects the influence of nearby France, and particularly the city of Liège.
