Percussion cane gun with handle finely relief carved as a sea monster with teeth made of horn and eyes made of pearl, sea plants below the monster's mouth and a silver oval plaque marked "Lindner/in/Suhl". A smoothbore steel barrel is housed inside of the bamboo shaft. Removable horn tipped brass ferrule that seconds as a cleaning rod.

Rating Definition:

Fine overall with some light age related wear, some small chips and repairs in the handle, and a crack on the horn tip of the ferrule. Mechanically functions fine.
