Jeweled gun of Sultan Mahmud I

This video reveals the various components of the jeweled gun of Sultan Mahmud I. View this ornate gun in Pearls on a String
This impressive gun served as a ceremonial object, held by one of Sultan Mahmud I’s attendants during state ceremonies. While the flamboyant decoration of the gun lent itself to public spectacle, the experience of extracting its treasures from the gun’s stock is a more personal act.
