Fine Pair of Officers Flintlock Pistols by Theophilus Richards dating the First Quarter of the 19th Century. Theophilus Richards was one of the most successful, influential and talented gunmakers of the early 19th century who helped strengthen the position of Birmingham as a major gunmaking centre for the British Empire. He is recorded as manufacturing guns under his own name by 1799 and retired from his businesses in 1825. These pistols are in near mint condition and of fine quality. The stocks are of walnut and the mounts of iron and steel which retain remnants of original blued finish. The tapering, round section, smooth 28 bore browned barrels are stamped with the maker's name THEOPS RICHARDS on the flattened tops near the breech and with Birmingham proof marks underneath. Each is mounted with fore and rear sights. The barrel tangs are engraved with chevrons and a shield. The flat, stepped, bordered lock plates are engraved on the nippled tails in similar manner to the barrel tangs. The maker's mark in similar form to its appearance on the barrels is clearly stamped underneath the pans. The flat, bevelled, swan necked cocks have chamfered edges bordered with engraved lines and strands of foliage in the middle. The frizzens are engraved in peascod style to the outsides and the frizzen springs are roller mounted. The trigger guards are shaped with pineapple finials and engraved on the bows with shields and foliage similar to the barrel tangs and lock plate tails. The ramrod mounts are finely shaped and bordered in similar style to the cocks. All of the major screws are engraved with starbursts. The full walnut stocks have finely chequered grips. The ebony ramrods are tipped with horn and one is mounted with a steel worm. A small silver escutcheon is mounted onto the spine of each butt engraved with the monogram “CF” in each case. The condition of the pistols is excellent, almost mint. There are a few minor dents on the reverse sides of the stocks with a couple of very minor stress cracks on one side. The stocks retain an attractive auburn colour to the grain. The iron furniture is in fine condition with the remains of original blued finish in places. The barrel browning is near complete. The locks are in fine symmetrical working order and the mainsprings and frizzen springs are of equal tension. The barrels are just over 7.5 inches long (19.5 cm) and overall measured diagonally extremity to extremity the pistols are 13.5 inches (34.25 cm) long. The father of Theophilus was Thomas Richards who died in 1779, a successful businessman that owned gunmaking and other concerns in Birmingham. He is the originator of the fortunes of the celebrated Richards family. Thomas traded overseas and like most gunmakers of this period profited from the American War of Independence and the slave trade in Africa. He influenced the development of the gunmaking trade in Birmingham. He was a member of a delegation from Birmingham in 1759 that visited Wales to look into the quality of iron produced for their goods. A Thomas Richards was interred at St. Philip's Cathedral Church in Birmingham in 1779 and is supposed to be the father of Theophilus. Theophilus had worked with his father and took over his businesses, probably continuing to manufacture and trade in his father’s name, for the next 20 years until he changed the name of the firm. Theophilus was manufacturing guns in his own name by 1799. At this time he was 52 years old and undoubtedly already an established gunmaker. He held a Royal contract for the manufacture of arms for the British Army. Unlike many other gunsmith businesses, which assembled separate parts made in different workshops in Birmingham, the Richards' family always had their own gunmaking factories on High Street. Hence, we can be reasonably sure that the pistols featured here were made “lock, stock and barrel” by the Richards business rather than produced as an assembly of contracted parts. The works that belonged to Theophilus was called “The Royal Patent Waterproof Gun Manufactory”, indicating the continuing interest the family had in developing patents for the improvement of guns. As a wealthy merchant Theophilus played his part in the expansion of Birmingham town. In 1803 he was High Bailiff of Birmingham and in 1808 he sat on a committee with Boulton, Watt and the politician, Thomas Attwood, dealing with new waterworks for Birmingham. His will shows that he invested in canal shares, as did most of Birmingham's wealthier citizens. An important gunmaker during the Napoleonic Wars he was respected by the Duke of Wellington for the quality of his muskets. At some time Theophilus moved to Edgbaston in the outskirts of Birmingham where he is recorded in 1815. Edgbaston at the time was described as a place of fine villas built for rich merchants. The gun business of Theophilus was most likely absorbed into that of his son William Westley Richards, either upon his retirement, or on his death in 1828, thus opening a new chapter of gunmaking in Birmingham. Theophilus was a well-connected man when he died. Executors of his will included Thomas Westley Oldham, who was High Sheriff of Leicester. A monument was erected in St Philip's in memory of Theophilus.

Fine London Tower Armouries Paget Cavalry Carbine. A particularly nice Paget cavalry carbine dating to the early 19th century. The carbine has survived in particularly fine condition for a military firearm. Clearly it has been stored in an armoury, then a collection setting, and is practically unused. The military style lock is bevelled at its edges and stamped ‘TOWER’ on the stepped and pointed tail, ‘G.R.’ below a crown beneath the pan and crown and broad arrow to the right. The lock is mounted with a ring-necked cock with sliding safety. The round .670 bore iron barrel is 16 inches long (40.5 cm) with an applied brass fore-sight, standing notched rear-sight and moulded band at the breech. The tang is stamped with a crown and number “4” beneath.  The barrel near the breech is marked with a crown with the number “17” beneath near the pan and with two proof marks on the opposite side towards the saddle bar. The walnut full-stock is mounted with brass furniture except for the large ‘J’ shaped saddle bar with loose ring and the captive pan-headed ramrod. The butt near the plate is stamped with the “GR” cypher and underneath the saddle bar in large letters the stamp “W S” appears with a vertical stamp of “B O”  to the right with an arrow pointing to the left from between the letters. A small further stamp to the right is illegible and three stamps are apparent on the wood inside the ramrod tube. The condition is fine overall. The barrel is in its original white slightly dulled finish. The engraved and stamped details are crisp and sharp. The bore has some debris inside but appears little used. The mechanical action of cocking in half and full positions is crisp and the safety catch smoothly operational. The woodwork is generally excellent with only minor knocks. There appears to be the remains of a stores label card sandwiched between the saddle-bar and the stock. The overall length of the carbine is 31.25 inches (79.5 cm).

Mid 18th Century Scottish Highland Dirk. A fine Highland Scottish dirk dating to the middle of the 18th century, fashioned with a hardwood grip, brass mounts and a wedge shaped stiff, diamond section blade. The grip decoration is applied in the Celtic manner. The middle section has two horizontal bands of reeded interlaced ropework in raised relief with small raised knops at the intersections. The underside of the pommel is carved with a pattern of conjoined arches and a ropework trefoil is carved between the haunches on each side. The pommel cap of thinly beaten brass is folded over at the edge to protect the pommel rim and engraved with two concentric circles of double lines inside. The threaded tang top protrudes through the middle of the pommel cap and is secured by a square shaped iron nut incised with lines. The base of the grip between the haunches is protected by a brass ferrule which is crescent shaped where the blade joins the grip. The blade is wedge shaped and has probably been cut down from a heavier earlier single edged sword blade. It is unmarked, any blade makers marks were probably erased during the cutting down process. Such blades were visibly formidable stabbing weapons. Overall the dirk is in fine condition. The blade has some old patches of minor pitting in parts. The blade is just over 12.5 inches (32 cm) long and overall the dirk is 17.5 inches long (44.5 cm). For a mid-18th century dirk with a similar wedge shaped blade see John Wallace, “Scottish Swords and Dirks”, Arms and Armour Press, 1970, fig 61.

Scottish Basket Hilted Sword for a Horseman circa 1740. A boldly constructed Scottish basket hilted sword dating to circa 1740. The hilt is of Dragoon type mounted with a Horseman’s oval ring. This feature replaces one of two main frontal guard panels which are more usually found on Scottish hilts.  The basket guard is made in the traditional Scottish manner.  The guard plates are pierced with heart and circle patterns and further decorated with incised vertical and horizontal lines. The arms of the guard are secured in a groove chiselled around the pommel just below its middle. The pommel is cone shaped and has a button on top from which three sets of triple lines radiate to its edge. It has the store keeper or unit number of 2/61 engraved upon it. The hilt is mounted with a broad scrolled wrist guard which is forged from the rear quillon. The grip is made from a baluster shaped spirally grooved wooden core, covered with shagreen and bound with now blackened twisted silver wire, and has iron ferrules mounted top and bottom. The hilt also retains its original leather liner, now detached at the base.  The sword is mounted with a French blade of excellent quality forged in  hollow ground tapering diamond section, with a flattened spine running down the centre to the tip on each side. On one side near the hilt, a panel inset amongst incised scrolls and foliage, contains the French phrase “VIVE LE ROY” (long live the king) running down the blade in large letters. On the other is an armorial with French fleur de lys depicted amongst scrolls, lattices and foliage. An eight pointed star is depicted below this with the word “Cavalier” beneath.  The blade has a short ricasso above which on both sides is the name “Solingen” indicating that the blade was made in this German blade making centre on order from France, probably as a batch, and made in the French taste. Given that the word “Cavalier” in French means “Horseman”, this, combined with the relatively long length and weight of the blade, clearly indicates that it was made for a Dragoon or similar mounted soldier and was mounted onto a Scottish “Horseman’s” hilt.  The sword may have been owned by a Scot with associations with France, or even one in French military service. Historically there has been a long relationship between Scotland and France. By the mid-18th century many of the Scottish gentry had followed family traditions and served as mercenaries with the French army, disregarding whether France was at war with England at the time, for hundreds of years. The most prestigious honour for a Scot in French service was to be selected to become a member of one of the French King’s elite Scots Guard Regiments. During the 18th century after the failure of the Jacobite rebellions, many fugitive Scots found a home in the French army fighting for the French crown. Hence these associations represented in a sword would not be unusual at the time and the French connection may also  indicate Jacobite and Catholic leanings of its owner.    Stephen Wood in his book “The Auld Alliance – Scotland and France: The Military Connection, Mainstream Publishing 1989, chronicles the history of Scots in military service with the French. The sword is in robust and solid condition. The blade is 36.5 inches (92.5 cm) long. Overall the sword is 42.75 inches (108 cm) long.

1779 Short Land Pattern Brown Bess Volunteer Musket by Clark of London. A fine late 18th century Tower Proofed, 10 bore, flintlock Militia Musket by Clark of London mounted with a 42 inch barrel. The overall length is 58 inches. The sighted barrel is stamped with “LONDON” on top near the breech and “SI” among the proof marks. The lock is of regulation form with a swan  neck cock. The walnut stock is carved with an apron  around the tang and impressed with the letters “WP” in the stock on the opposite side of the lock and with a number “10” on the spine of the butt. The brass mounts are of regulation type with the “S” shaped side plate also  impressed with the number “10”. The butt plate is is engraved with “N-Y 96”. The reappearance of the number “10” on the barrel near the proof marks speaks for the homogeneity of the parts. The sling loops are of iron and the three ramrod pipes are of brass. The musket retains its socket bayonet stamped with the numbers “94” and “41”. The ramrod is original made from steel with iron forming the swollen terminal and part of the shaft below which due to the nature of iron has rusted and pitted more markedly than the steel. The lock is signed “CLARK” , the gun-maker recorded as working in Holborn in London and having a Royal Government contract for the supply of flintlock muskets. The musket is in fine original condition with the mechanical parts in crisp working order.

Scottish Basket Hilted Broad Sword dating to the second quarter of the 17th Century. A Scottish basket hilted sword of early form mounted with a broad and robust double edged blade. This is a rare example and a noteworthy representation of its type. This sword form evolved in the early part of the 17th century and was used through to the English Civil War periods. It is the ancestor of the fully developed Scottish basket hilted swords of the later 17th and 18th centuries.  This example has its frontal guard plates formed as diamonds engraved at the edges with pairs of parallel lines to emphasise the shape.  Further pairs of lines form a decorative cross inside each panel area.  Notches are cut into the sides of each plate marking the beginning of the trend of Scottish sword makers to file frets and merlons into the edges of guard plates which became more complex and decorative on later swords with larger guard plates. The dome-shaped pommel has a groove chiselled around its circumference just below its middle which secures the main guard arm terminals. The tang end is peened over inside a flattened circular area on top of the pommel from which four pairs of parallel lines radiate outwards and terminate at the edge. The flattened butterfly shaped merlon bars at the sides strengthen the hilt structure by joining the main guard bars and are decorated with lines and crosses.  The spirally grooved grip is wrapped  with a leather covering stitched together down the front and bound with contra-twisted double sided lengths of wire. The grip retains the shrunken remnants of its original deer skin liner with the remains of its hair underneath.    The double-edged blade is of lenticular section and gently tapers to its tip. It has a rudimentary ricasso and central fuller with the remnants of an armourer’s mark each side formed as a series of letters. The lack of definition to the fullers and the ricasso  indicate that the blade may have been slimmed down from a larger earlier blade. This is not infeasible given the popularity of two-handed and hand-and-a-half size swords in Scotland until the beginning of the 17th century when they went out of fashion in favour of basket hilted swords for which many of the redundant larger blades were ground down for single hand use with companion targes.   The hilt closely resembles the basket guards of a number of Scottish swords illustrated in Cyril Mazansky’s “British Basket-Hilted Swords” (Boydell Press 2005), and in particular references D9, D10, D10a and D10b on pages 80 to 82. These swords have similar hilt structures and engraved line patterns to the frontal guard panels and side guards. These swords are housed in various important collections including Blair Castle in Perthshire, the Marischall Museum in Aberdeen and The Royal Armouries. Two further similar swords housed in the National Museums of Scotland, are illustrated in John Wallace, Scottish Swords & Dirks, 1970, Arms and Armour Press, figs 23 and 24. The blade length is just under 31 inches (78 cm) and the overall length is 36 inches (91.25 cm).

Scottish Dirk for an Officer of the 74th Highlanders dating prior to 1881. An imposing Officer’s dirk of the 74th (Highland) Regiment of Foot dating to before the widespread reforms to the British Infantry implemented by the Secretary of State for War Hugh Childers in 1881. As part of these reforms the 74th (Highland) Regiment amalgamated with the 71st (Highland) Regiment to become the  Highland Light Infantry with the 74th forming the 2nd Battalion. The dirk mounts are of gilt bronze and it was retailed by Hamburger Rogers & Co of King Street, Covent Garden, London. The business began in 1794 and adopted this name in 1839 to supply military uniforms  and accessories and prospered into the 20th century. The single-edged blade is just under a foot long (30 cm) and has a blunt back edge extending 8 inches (20 cm) from the base of the grip which is scalloped for most of its length after which it is double edged to the tip. A single pronounced fuller runs underneath the blunt back edge with a broader, shallower fuller running beneath along the middle of the blade. The blade is sumptuously etched and engraved on both sides. One side has the name of the retailer near the grip with a stand of Scottish arms above this. The rest of the blade is taken up with the battle honours of the regiment in scrolling script beginning with the Sieges of Seringapatam in India in 1792 / 1799 and ending with the Peninsular Campaign of the Napoleonic Period and the Battle for Toulouse in 1814. The reverse side has patterns of scrolls along the blade interspersed with various features. Near the grip “LXXIV” signifies the Regimental number with an elephant above over which “ASSAYE” marks the involvement of the Regiment in the battle of that name in India in 1803. Above this a vacant cartouche is present surrounded by foliage. On top of this the Regimental badge, a circular belt with a thistle inside, on a star surround, is inscribed “NEMO ME IMPUNE LACESSIT (NO ONE PROVOKES ME WITH IMPUNITY)”. This was the Latin motto of the Royal Stuart dynasty of Scotland from at least the reign of James VI when it appeared on the reverse side of merk coins minted in 1578 and 1580. It is still the adopted motto of the Order of the Thistle and of some Scottish regiments of the modern British Army. Further towards the tip is the “VR” cipher represents Queen Victoria with a crown above. The grips of the dirk, by-knife and fork are baluster shaped and of black hardwood cut with fluted basket weave patterns with brass studs mounted at the intersections. Each piece is mounted with a pommel with bold foliage and thistles in raised relief with yellow backed multi-faceted citrines mounted on top. The by-knife and fork are secured in their pockets with spring steel clips mounted onto each grip on one side. The Regimental badge and motto is applied either side of the base mount of the dirk grip, similar to the badge on the blade, on a background of thistles and foliage. The scabbard is of wood covered with leather and retains its original suspension bars at the back. The mouthpiece to the front shows St Andrew holding a cross on a background of a star with foliage beneath. The mount for the by-knife pocket shows an Indian Elephant with “ASSAYE” above, as on the blade, with thistles and foliage beneath. On the mount of the by-fork pocket is the Regimental number “74” within a frame of thistles. The chape is finished with further thistle designs. The dirk is in overall good condition. The bronze mounts retain most of their gilt cover. The blade has small patches of inactive blackened rust and staining in places. The overall length of the dirk in its scabbard is 19 inches (49 cm). The 74th was raised in 1787 by Archibald Campbell, their first Colonel, and was known as Campbell’s Highlanders. The Regiment first saw action in India during the Mysore campaign of 1789, and subsequently saw action under Arthur Wellesley in the Mahratta War of 1802. Returning to Europe, the 74th served under Wellington again in the Peninsular campaign, and fought at Busaco, Fuentes d’Onoro, (both sieges of Badajoz), also the siege of Ciudad Rodrigo, Salamanca, Vittoria, Nivelles, Tarbes, Orthe, and Toulouse. It was then sent to help garrison Ireland, and so missed the Battle of Waterloo, although it was on its way to embark for Belgium when news of the battle arrived. The Regiment remained in Ireland until 1818, and was then in Canada and New Brunswick until 1828, Bermuda for a year, and in Ireland again from 1830 to 1834. Later in the 1830s and into the 1840s, the 74th was stationed in St. Lucia, Barbados and other islands in the West Indies; its personnel keeping remarkably healthy apart from one outbreak of fever and dysentry. Without coming home again, the Regiment went to Quebec in Canada. The 74th came back to Britain from Canada in March 1845 and later that year became the 74th (Highland) Regiment and served in the Kaffir War and in the Sepoy Rebellion.
