Rare, beautifully crafted, pierced iron key... - Lot 82 - Marambat - de Malafosse
Rare, beautifully crafted, pierced iron key for a pinwheel harquebus. This quality item, indispensable for the use of a pinwheel weapon, is not easily found. The head is drilled right through and machined at both ends with two female squares to drive the spinning wheel and cock it. The outer sides are faceted and flared. The body of the key features a movable captive ring for attaching the key to the "12 apostles" or to the ceninture, for example. The handle of the enlarged key is finely reperced for both decorative and lightening purposes, and its end forms a screwdriver blade. Beautiful work evoking the early 18th century (Condition 1) 235 mm
