Mariette Gilles

Gun with one shot called “salon” with annular percussion. The barrel is eight-sided with ball front sight. Walnut wood butt is of the renaissance type. It ends with a metal balustrade cap. The trigger guard is finger-resting.

The weapon does not bear any marks from the Liège proofhouse, which is quite unusual!

The weapon bears the inscription Gilles Mariette and the mark of Flobert depicting a stylized lion standing with a sign bearing the inscription Flobert Inv Bte.

Was this gun manufactured by Gilles Mariette for Flobert?
