Fancy double barrel shotgun marked on locks "A.W.SPIES" and on barrel rib "LONDON". 33" barrels of about 12 gauge bores. Nicely engraved metal parts, including german silver mountings. Fancy capbox in toe of stock. Metal parts have light gray surfaces overall with some light pitting in the barrel breech area. Stock is well-worn with faint checkering in the wrist, shows expected marks from handling, and a nicely repaired piece of wood at rear of right lock mortise. Nice original shotgun rod with cleaning worm on end. Nipples are modern replacements. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
