This flintlock pistol has a 8 inch brass barrel marked London at the top. Caliber is about 15 mm. Lock is marked W.KETLAND & CO. Stock is marked T*C behind the lock counter plate, which probably are the stock-maker's initials. Lock cocks and fires, but the main spring is weak.
Pistols like these were immensely popular private purchase guns sold in the American market in the early years of 19th century, for both the civilian and the martial purposes. Some are described as ship's pistols; inexpensive, sturdy, and reliable. This is an all-original piece from a Rhode Island estate, with no repairs or alterations, and shows signs of honest age.
Virtually all of Ketland-marked guns were made to be imported into the United States, and should be considered as American as Pennsylvania long-rifles.
