Octagonal barrel with diminutive blade front sight, small notched rear sight and a tang mounted folding sight. Signed in silver "Jos Dolner in Kaum (?, difficult to make out final few letters)". Full length jaeger-style stock with iconic flowing brass trigger guard with finger loops. Stock terminates in a horn cap; ramrod with brass wrapped tip retained by faceted ferrules. "Action" superficially resembles a wheelock mechanism without the wheel, and only decorates the firearm. The true action is concealed in the butt with exterior crank for access without removing any screws. These rifles traditionally operated with a set of bellows in the buttstock and it is likely this follows the same pattern. Lock is decorated with sparse scrollwork. Wood has decorative brass inlays in flowing patterns but unengraved and areas of incised carving with florals and areas of checkering that resembles fish scales. CONDITION: Very good. Metal parts are a smooth dark patina. Brass has a dark mustard patina. Stock is good, with several areas of cracks, repairs, and chips, but well presenting of the carving. This is a very attractive example of a fine German air rifle. EMW
