Matchlock musket, anonymous, 1600 - 1650

iron (metal), l 158.3cm. More details

Alongside the production of standard weapons, during the 17th century gunmakers began to specialize in luxury firearms. They worked for rich patrons and made a good living in the process. For this reason, it is curious that so few of these luxury weapons were signed by their makers. The stock of this musket is inlaid with mother-of-pearl plaques with scenes of hunters and animals.
