Holland & Holland bought the old W. & C. Scott company in 1979 and produced boxlock guns in different grades given names according to grade. The Chatsworth was the highest grade boxlock gun. These guns with dovetailed 28" barrels have narrow, swamped game ribs with numbers "1" or "2" gold inlaid at rear portions of ribs, as well as on top levers, and forend tips. Tops of barrels are engraved "W & C Scott Gunmakers" "Birmingham England" and with 1-1/4" triangles of scroll at breech ends. Barrel flats are stamped with 1982 Birmingham nitro proofs for 2 - 3/4" chambers. Coin finished boxlock actions are fitted with ornamental sideplates and feature automatic safeties (SAFE inlaid in gold), and double triggers. Actions and lockplates are engraved with full coverage scroll surrounding large rose bouquets within geometric borders. "W & C. Scott" is on riband on each sideplate. Blued top levers, floorplates, and single beaded trigger guards are engraved with matching scroll. "The Chatsworth" is on each floorplate. Serial numbers are on trigger guard tangs. Well matched fiddle figured and lightly streaked European walnut straight grip buttstocks measure 15" over checkered wood butts and feature fluted drop points, point pattern checkering on diamond hands, and gold shields on toe lines engraved "RS". Matching splinter ejector forends have Anson releases. Guns are housed in tan leather two gun case with brass corners, is lined in burgundy cloth with gold embossed Scott label in lid. Case contains cleaning equipment, snap caps, and square oil bottle. CONDITION: Excellent, very close to new with scant evidence of having been fired since proof, with only one or two of the faintest handling and assembly marks in all wood and metal finishes. Mechanically excellent. Case is excellent inside and out. It appears that these guns were specially ordered as the normal Chatsworth offering was case hardened and did not have sideplates. This pair is perhaps unique. MGM 136
