Are there any stamping on the top of the barrel or left side of the barrel barrel?

Its missing the pommel, which is a large decorative brass piece that was on the bottom of the grip.

There is no way to determine who or where it was made, England was the only country in this pistol's time frame that had a proofing house and proof laws. My best guess on origin is France based on the style of it's ornamentation but that is just a guess and may very well be wrong. It is what is called a horse pistol and is civilian in nature, given the poor condition the value would be fairly low and based on the value of it's usable parts. A modern builder might pay a hundred bucks or so for it for the lock, side plate and entry thimble.
