Scarce Chinese Matchlock gun musket 19th century

An antique Chinese Gun in great original condition, all original circa 1840.  The wooden stock undamaged, really great quality steel barrel facetted to the upper section becoming cylindrical to the lower with a raised ridge along the top. Rear and fore sight fitted. The matchlock mechanism still working, the long curved matchholder, and trigger made of iron. A rare piece.
