This antique Miquelet pistol appears to date circa 1820 and similar pistols date from the 1800 to 1880's. The Miquelet lock is marked with the engraved "bird" design used by the Ragusa armory in the Balkans. It was likely produced for use in the Balkan states, such as Bosnia, Montenegro, or Serbia during that period due to the ongoing conflicts in that region.

The .62 caliber smoothbore barrel is 11-1/2" overall length. The bore has been scrubbed bright, but does have some dark spots visible over the length of the barrel. The right hand muzzle end has a small dent.. The exterior of the barrel has aged to a gray brown patina. It has faint engraved designs visible on the upper breech end of the barrel.

The stock is covered in brass sheet that has been secured with small brass brads. The pointed grip, wrist, and forearm are all decorated with engraved scroll designs. The wrist is decorated with six silver rosettes on both sides of the wrist. The barrel is secured with two brass barrel bands. The triggerguard is iron, fitted with a brass overlay on the bow. The ramrod is decorative. It was never meant to be removed.

The Miquelet design is associated with locks of Mediterranean origins, most commonly Spain and Italy. The Miquelet locks have the mainspring mounted on the exterior of the lock. The frizzen has vertical grooves, which is common to those locks. The lock is functional and does spark fairly well for a smaller lock. The mainspring has a stylized bird engraved on the lower leg, which attributed it to production at the Ragusa armoury.
