Looking for the furniture to this Jaeger

I bought this original Jaeger rifle a couple years ago. The gentleman that I had purchased the rifle from had already sold off the original brass parts from it but had a set of castings made from the originals, which I was able to use to have it restored. I would love to find the original brass parts from this gun to return it to it's original condition. Thanks!

Turkish decorative antique pistol

Decorative Turkish pistol. Not a reproduction. The barrel is not drilled for a touch hole and it is not substantial at the breech so it was never made to fire. The lock is flimsy and not made to work but will go to full and half cock.There are really nice silver wire work inlays and mother of pearl translucent inlays. There are profuse silver inlays in the barrel and lock. It is really elaborate and good quality. Cast brass mounts. Two pictures does not do it justice, more available. The barrel is 8.5 long with about an half inch bore. The reason I am posting this is because of the extensive wire work in the stock and silver inlays in the barrel and furniture.

18th Century Wrought Iron Candle Stand

Wrought iron candle stands were extremely popular in Colonial America. They afforded their owners a convenient method of placing light exactly where it was needed in the otherwise dark interior of an 18th Century home. This hand forged American candle holder made from wrought iron is a great example of such a light. This style of candle holder was made to hold a splint or candle, utilizing a candle socket and tension spring. The spring keeps constant tension on the candle or splint and allows for height adjustment as it burns. There is a secondary candle socket attached to the main beam of the light. The main beam is the support structure for both candle sockets, and features a lovely twist design at the base that transitions into a chair hook or carry handle at the top. The drip pan is certainly another pleasing and unique feature on this light. It displays a heart design that has been gracefully and precisely shaped, containing a turned up lip around its perimeter. Beneath the heart shaped pan sit 3 delicate feet that support this finely made candle stand. The light measures 9 1/4″ tall with a 4 1/2″ wide pan.
