This buttstock would be either a great restoration or just a great sculpture hanging up or in a shadow box. This fine rifle stock was made in Pennsylvania and the fragment measures 14" overall. There are a total of 17 silver inlays, most engraved. There are also eight ivory inlays within the piercings of the four piece engraved brass patchbox with a "hex" sign star engraved in the center of the lid. The left side of the buttstock is highly carved with folky designs and foliate motifs behind the cheekpiece. Above the cheekpiece is a large detailed engraved fish chasing a smaller fish. Other inlays include teardrops, hearts and half moons. It is interesting to imagine how ornate and beautiful the complete rifle would have been. CONDITION: Eight inlays and toe plate are missing. Excellent as found dark patinas overall. DMG
