This very early and unusual fowling gun is stocked in walnut and features raised-carving
that centers trigger guard, the ramrod entry pipe and the tang; also, the grip is carved
before the chamber and there is a raised plateau before the chamber on each side;
incised molding extends from the swell to muzzle. The fore stock is restored between
first and second pipes. The 36” barrel is in brown finish with traces of bright finish
parallel to barrel channel. The lock, frizzen, cock; jaw and chamber release are
mechanically fine and original. The brass butt-plate with raised border features a leaf
shaped tang; other brass furniture includes the trigger guard with shaped final and long
tang; thumb-plate and pierced side-plate featuring eagle head and scrolled leafy
devices; all with rich patina. We found a closely related example published within
Antique European and American Firearms at the Hermitage Museum by L. Trassuk,
plate III; text entry 355; see scan. Overall L: 52”.
