Harvey Walklate Mortimer, London. Magnificent 16-bore single barrel flintlock sporting gun, ca. 1790. Weight: 5 ½ Lbs.  LOP: 14”.  Superb 36 ½” two-stage  barrel, retaining virtually all of a period rebrown finish, and with an absolutely mint bore. Gold touch-hole liner and flush-inlaid silver spider front sight. Exquisite lock with delicately pierced and engraved bridle …. Internal parts retaining much of the original fire blue remaining after final heat treating of the parts. Beautifully engraved iron mounts and nicely figured walnut stock showing little use. Original ramrod. Cased with a full complement of accessories in a beautiful proper period case which has been relined. Overall a superb gun from the Keith Neal Collection remaining in very fine condition throughout.
