Continental percussion shotgun with carving of a lion. 32-1/4" barrels of about . No lock markings apparent, barrel is ornamented with gold, which is unreadable. Metal parts are engraved with dark patina on the locks and barrels, some scattered pitting is also present. Gun has provision for sling swivels, which are absent. Stock has nicely carved lion behind the triggerguard, nicely shaped cheekpiece, and finely checkered wrist. Wood overall shows moderate wear and use overall with older added finish overall and scattered marks from handling. There is a crack behind the left lock that comes around into the area of the triggerguard and is mostly very well disguised. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
