This rifle is believed to have been presented to Nelson together with a scimitar and canteen by the Sultan of Turkey after the Battle of the Nile. Ivory stocked, the rifle is decorated with silver and gilt studs and with bands of gilt brass and mother of pearl. The lock is a Turkish variant of the Spanish miquelet lock on which is gold koftgari decoration (an ornamental work produced by inlaying steel with gold).
