Description

A non-firing stunning 12-bore hammer, by George Smith, the action superbly engraved with bouquet and foliate-scroll, with carved delicate fences engraved with the top tang boldly engraved with acanthus-scroll, Jones patent rotary underlever, the barrels in stunning Lockyer Bronze finish, with hammers and double-trigger in dazzling Lockyer Gold finish, with well-figured walnut stock. Comes complete with engraved presentation box and bespoke stand. 

George Smith operated from 1859-1897 and this piece is one of the earliest. A London maker with several addresses over the years from Davies St to New Bond St. This piece is of particular note as there are one or two George Smith hammer sporting arms in the Royal Collection at Sandringham. However, even this piece is an earlier serial number than those.
