Interesting and unusual flintlock tinder-lighter circa 1790-1820, probably English origin, brass body, wood bag-shaped grip. No maker’s name. Measures 7” overall. The front of the pistol-shaped tinder-lighter is hinged to contain tinder with a large central portion for ignition of tinder. The frame is lightly engraved, the grip shows a few dings and mars. Generally tinder-lighters do not resemble pistols this closely. Fromthe Keith Coulter collection. Est: $750 - $1,500
