Hollis & Sheath, as marked on locks, English double barrel percussion shotgun. 32" barrels of about 10 gauge bore. This is a nice quality English shotgun by a well-regarded maker that has seen a good deal of use. Metal parts are lightly cleaned, showing twist finish on the barrels. There is some well-worn light pitting present. Nice capbox with folding lid in the belly of the butt. Wood is well-worn and shows evidence of cleaning, worn chip in toe of butt, small piece missing from left lock mortise, small crack above right lock mortise, worn old slivering from forearm edges. Nice antique shotgun rod has an interesting antique brass-mended repair near tip. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
