Weapons - Eighteenth Century

I thought these weapons were really interesting.  The large one is described as a muzzle loading carbine for domestic defense or for use on horseback.

It is dated from 1762. It was made by Henry Hadley and the siversmith was Jeremiah Ashley. 

The other two is a pair of dueling pistols.

Next time we visit Saltram's Library.
