The tapered barrel, probably European, has a partial relief rib on top and a faceted breech section stamped deeply with flower on the left side. The early convex banana lock plate is unmarked and was converted to percussion during the period of use. The brass mounts are in the European style and are un-engraved. Decorative curled trigger. The figured maple stock of early form has relief carving around the comb extending to scrolls on both sides of the wrist. There is a crude relief shell design around the barrel tang. The left side of the buttstock features early relief foliate scrolls on both sides of the relief cheekpiece. There are also relief panels around the lock and sideplate. CONDITION: As found and untouched, showing extensive use and period alterations. Barrel retains a grey patina with some darker areas and corrosion at breech. Lock has been converted to percussion and retains a grey patina, mechanism is weak. Stock has been shortened to half stock and shows some losses and splintering on forend. Two holes behind the trigger guard show evidence of a sling swivel stud that was once in place. Sideplate possibly a period replacement. Brass retains a pleasing dark patina. A very nice early fowler. DMG
