The exhibit is a representative example of a luxurious, richly decorated firearm. An early type of pistol called the puffer, characterised by the presence of a massive ball at the end of the butt.

One third of the pistol barrel is octagonal; the rest is round with a slightly opened muzzle. The wooden bed (an element where a barrel is fixed) and a butt are ended with a large ball and are inlaid with a dense tangle of twigs and birds. The wheellock is decorated with an engraved plant ornament. The trigger and the trigger guard are made of steel.
