Japanese Matchlocks

 

KUNITOMO MATCHLOCK

This is an excellent matchlock. The overall length is 
53 1/2" with a bore size of about 5/8".  Its barrel is
octagonal and has fine inlay of silver and brass. One 
inlay is a family mon and the other is of a highly detailed
peacock. The under side of the barrel is signed with 13
kanji and in part, states it is from the Kunitomo group of
makers.  The oak stock is in fine condition with about 10
separate brass designs of shishi, bamboo, kiri and cloud
forms. The gun is of fine quality, in excellent condition, 
with lots of eye appeal. The ramrod is not original but 
looks great.
