The website that held this information did not describe the date this weapon was manufactured, but I have to guess mid 18th century. The quality of the engraving, the style of the typography all would indicate this is a classic almost steam punck versionof a flintlock hidden in a butter knife. Floral scroll engraving reads F.X. RICHTER and IN REICHENBERG. There is a dragon or chimera of some kind depicted and the muzzle is protruding in the design from the mouth.

 

It is silver and 25 caliber.

 

It is on sale for $3700 at http://www.icollector.com.
