An early 18th century percussion (converted from flintlock) holster pistol by Israel Segalas, circa 1715. A 10 inch barrel, brass lock plate, swan neck percussion cock, walnut full stock woodwork of superb colour, brass butt with long ears and lion head ornament, brass trigger guard and fancy brass scrollwork opposing the lock plate. Proof marks to barrel and signed Segalas on the lock plate. Israel Segalas was an Arquebusier from Navaret, Béarn, France and came to London circa 1702. His premises were in Castle Street from 1707-1723 and he was made a Freeman of the Gunmakers Company in 1715. He died in 1737 and his business was carried on by his widow and son whose name was also Israel. This is a lovely example of an early London made holster pistol and rare to find in such beautiful condition.
