Description:

This rifle appears to have started life as an Austrian Lorenz percussion rifle that was converted to the Lindner breech loading system during the America Civil War era. It has been subsequently converted to flintlock configuration and engraved by a modern gunsmith, and spuriously marked "E.BAKER & SON./LONDON." on the lock, small gold inlaid "E. BAKER/LONDON" spuriously marked on top of the Lindner breech block, and "EZEKIAL BAKER & SON. 24 WHITECHAPEL ROAD. LONDON. GUN MAKER TO HIS MAJESTY" spuriously marked on top of the barrel. Ezekial Baker (1758–1836) was a master gunsmith known for his design of the British military Baker rifle in 1800. This rifle was built well after his death, and was subsequently embellished by a modern gunsmith likely as a tribute to his style of work. Provenance: The Collection of Joe M. Wanenmacher Jr
