Unsigned Peter Anstat, Rockland Twnshp, Berks Co ca 1800

Peter, the son of Adam Angstadt, was born in 1763 and died in 1815. He worked in both Rockland township and Maxatawny township in Berks County. This rifle has the typical architecture and decoration of the Angstat family. Attribution to Peter is based on the light simplistic style of engraving, the side plate, and the heart shaped piercing of the patchbox. Surfaces are pleasing and original. 42 inch octagon to round smoothbore barrel has engraved markings where the signature would be. Some wood expertly added under lock and at fore end. Lock is reconverted. Email me for more pictures.

Early-Mid 17th Century English Mourning Seal Ring **SOLD PP**

Rare c. 1600-1650 mourning ring originally from England. The ring has the 17th century motif of a skeleton arising from its coffin, with a wand in each hand, topped with stars. Flanking the coffin are the initials "P H" for the decedent; the initials are reversed so as to use the ring a s a wax seal. Below the coffin are what appear to be crossed swords. The ring is large with an approximate size of 11.5 and is made of bronze. A wonderfully macabre piece of history. I will pay shipping.

Signed John Meals Menallen Township Adams Co PA ca 1830

This is a light weight diminutive rifle possibly made for a lady. The original length barrel is 37 & 1/4 inches and is signed in script. The lock is original to the rifle and was converted using a Bedford County Style Percussion hammer forged by the gunsmith. Artificial graining shows the surface has never been disturbed. There is no restoration or losses. The patchbox, toe plate, and side plate are nicely engraved. Meal's executed some interesting carving behind the cheekpiece using a floral device. The condition, surface quality, signature, and diminutive size make this a wonderful addition to any collection. email me for more pictures of this interesting rifle.

Original 18th Century "Smooth Rifle"

This is a very unique and interesting gun, fresh from a collection in Lancaster Pa. The octagon to round smoothbore barrel is still full length at 46 5/8 inches long and retains a beautiful oxidized surface. The gun is stocked in walnut and is relief carved behind the entry pipe and barrel tang, as well as around the trigger plate and the forward extension of the trigger guard. There are some old repairs visible on the stock at the muzzle end. The brass mounts are spectacular and show possible Dutch influence. They are bold in style and nicely engraved. The flintlock also has a nice patina and shows an old repair on the cock. This is a long, slender gun with bold features and a warm, rustic appearance. It is being offered at a very modest price and would make a wonderful addition to any collection.

Beautiful Pair of early 19th Century Candle Sconces

This is a magnificent pair of hand forged wrought iron, Colonial American candle sconces. The design, symmetry and overall composition of the scroll work are superb. Good original examples of this quality are extremely rare. This pair remains in untouched, as-found condition, with no breaks or repairs. The sconces stand 22" tall and are an average of 6 1/2" wide. They will hold a 1 1/8" diameter candle in each of the cups. They are a great representation of early lighting in Colonial America and could be enjoyed in any early setting.
