12 ga. 25" demi-bloc barrels are fitted with slightly raised, matted, solid rib. Left side of top barrel is engraved "IVO FABBRI - BRESCIA" and right side "VACUUM ARC REMELTING STEEL". Bottom flat is stamped with 1987 Italian nitro proofs for 2 - 3/4" chambers. Coin finished, low profile, over/under sidelock action features non-automatic safety (SAFE engraved), grooved tumbler end cocking indicators, and single non-selective trigger. Action and lockplates are engraved in semi-relief Baroque style with large, open, shaded acanthus and scroll with floral highlights emanating from the mouth of a sphinx-like crouched griffin on each lockplate. Bottom of action with more open scroll has pair of female angels flanking trigger plate. "IVO - FABBRI" "-BRESCIA-" are in shield above angel scene. This engraving pattern appears to have been originated by, and is a favorite of, Claudio Tomasoni, whose signature appears on trigger plate. This fine engraving extends to trigger guard with "3309" at grip. Nicely marbled and very lightly figured European walnut round knob pistol grip buttstock measures 14" over checkered wood butt. Point pattern checkering is at grip. Individual gold initials "G.P." are on toe line. Matching one piece forend has Anson type release. Tan leather case with stitched leather corners by Nizzoli is lined in burgundy cloth. CONDITION: Excellent, near new, with little evidence of firing, and very limited field use. There are a few light marks in finish of wood. Case leather has a few minor scuffs, is still light in color. Straps and handle are good. Interior cloth is excellent. A snappy short barreled gun, often referred to in Europe as a "forest gun", ideal for grouse and woodcock. Fabbri produces 20-25 guns per year, with a starting price for a standard model of approximately $110,000.00, extra for special engraving. TDW
