- Filling the page fragment is a matchlock gun. The long stock features small silvery flowers near its extended breech, here painted dark gray. The match, which rests on top of the breech, would be ignited to set off the mechanism, which then fires the gun. The top of the long barrel is painted light gray and is decorated with flowers and other patterns. It has a decorative muzzle also painted in light gray. Such matchlocks were intended for hunting, and were made for aristocratic clientele. Rajput Style, Kota School.
