From the golden era of English shotguns, this Hooton & Jones, Liverpool, hammer gun shows the beautiful craftsmanship and artistry of British firearms of thelate 19th century.. Exquisite metal engraving and finishing, combine with superb wood detailing, carving, and checkering to make this 12 guage bouble barrel example indicative of the workmanship and design of the period. A small escutcheon is missing from the underside of the buttstock, some wood loss to the stock between the sidelock and trigger guard, and overall wear to the gun are evident in this non-shooting example. A superb display piece exhibiting the artistry and elegance of the period.
