**MASSIVE**19th Century North African / Moroccan/ Arabic 25 Bore Miquelet Lock Camel Musket With Decorated Brass Barrel Bands & Ram Rod. Sn 21450 - 21450
Miquelet lock is a modern term used by collectors and curators, largely in the English-speaking world, for a type of firing mechanism used in muskets and pistols. It is a distinctive form of snaplock, originally as a flint-against-steel ignition form, once prevalent in Spain, Portugal, Italy, the Balkans, North Africa, the Ottoman Empire and throughout Spain's colonies from the late 16th to the mid 19th centuries. The miquelet may have come to the attention of arms makers in Istanbul & North Africa via long-established trade routes from Italian city-states through the port of Ragusa (Dubrovnik) to provinces on the Balkan Peninsula. Other avenues were probably provided by booty from corsair raids and/or from the many Ottoman-Euro conflicts of the period. The muzzle loading weapons were generally handmade weapons, and consequently they widely varied in their construction. They usually had very long barrels. The stocks were handmade and ornately decorated, featuring a distinctive curve which is not seen in the stocks of other muskets. The function of this curve is debated; it may be purely decorative, or it may have allowed the weapon to be tucked under the arm and cradled tightly against the body, as opposed to being held to the shoulder like a typical musket or rifle. These type of guns were often carried by warriors mounted on Camels. This is a 19th century miquelet lock Camel musket. It measures 5 Feet 1 Inch overall length. It has a 47” sighted steel barrel which is 25 Bore. The bore has heavy staining and residue consistent with age & use. The barrel has hand tooled brass barrel bands. The shoulder stock has typical thick tropical hardwood butt plate. The musket has a steel ram rod. The weapon has the wear and patina to be expected of a native North African / Arabic weapon of its age. The lock plate and cock have naïve markings (illustrated in image 2). The cocking spring is strong but the lock does not cock. Delivery of this item will be by arrangement, at cost & within the UK only. NB As an antique miquelet musket no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 21450

*Scarce* Victorian Boer War Period Entrenching Tool Manufactured By Edward And Wm Lucas At The Dronfield Forge And Shovel Works United Kingdom 1891. Patented By Nesbit Willoughby Wallace. 21608. - 21608
A Wallace Patent Combination Military Entrenching Tool commonly used with the P-1888 Slade Wallace leather set. The spade blade doubling as an axe and as an inch ruler and the handle as a spike and hammer. Faintly stamped WALLACE PATENT EDWD LUCAS & SON BRONFIELD FORGE C.& M. 1883 to the face of the spade. Valise Equipment, Pattern 1888 also known as Slade-Wallace Equipment was a leather harness used by the British Armed Forces. It was the standard equipment worn by British and Imperial infantry during the Second Boer War. The equipment was designed in 1888 by Colonel Slade and Major Wallace for use with the first .303-inch calibre rifles, replacing the Valise Equipment, Pattern 1870, which had entered service in 1871. This had to be a nightmare and costly to make and one can understand why these are so very hard to come by as almost every one got taken home to somebody's garden shed. This is an excerpt from the book The battle of Tofrek By William Galloway; "This tool, which weighs about 2 lbs. 5 ozs. and is 24 inches long, is patented in England and America and on the Continent, and has been adopted by the English and South Australian Governments. It is a small spade with a broad blade, and a crosspick for the handle. The pick consists of an armoured wooden crutch, the wood of which forms a strong backing to the steel point, and acts as a buffer against the jar caused by repeated blows. It is covered with steel sheathing, which is in two parts, fits closely to the wooden head, and is fastened on by rivets to the crutch, and by rivets and a band to the handle. Each point is composed of one-inch of solid steel, which, when blunted by use, can be sharpened. One end is a pick, the other a hammer. The metal used is very hard and well-tempered, while the tool is made so as to be easily repaired if damaged. To put it briefly, the chief virtues of the entrenching tool are the simple combination of pick and spade, which is obtained without any complicated arrangement; the shape of the blade; and the projection at the back, which guards the knuckles when digging, and also 'cants' the blade to clear the wrist when the pick is used. "The British Government has just ordered 20,000 of these entrenching tools, having been previously supplied with 30,000. Foreign countries have ordered a supply for an exhaustive trial of their peculiar merits. "The ' Pioneer' spade, is intended for clearing ground and for bushwork, where the combination of a serviceable billhook with a small pick and spade must often be very convenient. "Major Wallace's tools are not intended to take the place of the full-sized 'Pioneer' picks and shovels, which will still be necessary for all heavy digging and for rocky ground, though, on an emergency, the 'Wallace' spade may be found a fair substitute. It is claimed for these tools that they are of extraordinary strength for their size and weight, and that they may be relied on to stand very severe wear and tear, if fairly used, and even to do work of which, at first sight, they would hardly be thought capable. For instance, they will break down or loophole an ordinary stone or brick wall though, perhaps, at the cost of some of the spades. Loopholing was successfully carried out with them in the first Egyptian campaign, when they were also found to be useful and efficient substitutes for small axes in cutting firewood, and invaluable in camp life. Numerous testimonials, from general and other officers, and also from civil engineers, are before the writer, in proof of the above. The spades are not offered as cheap tools. They are made of the very best materials picked ashen shafts and steel of the first quality; and they have to be put together with great care. So long as this is the case the spades can never be cheaply turned out though a large order can be executed at a considerable reduction in price. Their value depends so entirely upon their quality that the inventor declines to supply them except through his own manufacturer, as he can then guarantee the materials and the workmanship. Messrs. E. Lucas and Son, of Dronfield, are the manufacturers." The Illustrated Naval and Military Magazine, July 1885. This example is in remarkably good condition with timber and metalwork intact and tight. Measuring; 61 ½ cm in length with the spike/hammer being 17 cm wide. The spade is 13 ½ cm narrowing to 10 ½ cm. The price for this scarce piece of history includes UK delivery. 21608.
