This is a beautiful piece! This has one of the most beautiful stocks that you will ever encounter! This gun would have been made in the 1840's or 1850's. This gun would have been owned by a very wealthy person and used for target shooting, which was a very popular gentleman's sport during those days. It fires a whopping bullet of approximately .54 caliber from the full-length 8-1/4th inch barrel. The barrel has the original silver blade sight on the front. You can tell the quality of the construction because of the gold inlay on the barrel. By the front sight, it has the gold inlaid arrow design. At the breech, it has the ornate four line inlay of gold. On the left hand flat of the barrel it has the oval stamping that lets us know the barrel was made in Belgium. The lock of the gun has ornate engraving on the front and back that matches the hammer and barrel breech and looks beautiful. The mechanics of the still work crisply. This gun is designed with the set-trigger mechanism to aid in the target shooting. It has the spur style triggerguard with the ornate engraving. The stock of this gun is what really makes this one stand out. The front of the stock towards the barrel muzzle has the spectacular engraving that shows a man's face. It is brilliantly executed as you can see. The wrist of the grip has the delicate checkering carving and the scallop designs around the base of the grip. On the very bottom of the grip it has the clamshell design that reveals the inner compartment. On the wrist of the stock it has the inlaid silver shield. On the flat of the stock opposite of the lockplate it has the backplate that is designed like 2 lions. This is a wonderful looking weapon from all angles.
