Classic brass Nicholas Beyer furniture including a pierced 4-piece patchbox. Highly figured tiger maple stock. Relief carving on left side of buttstock, around barrel tang, and around wrist escutcheon continuing toward comb and on right side of buttock ahead of patchbox finial. There is an inlaid brass extension to the buttplate tang featuring an inlaid circle of mother of pearl. Another piece of mother of pearl is inlaid behind the star above the cheekpiece. Complete with period ramrod and an iron worm in the patchbox. CONDITION: Barrel retains an applied brown finish. Lock is a modern replacement, does not hold on cock or half cock. Brass shows scattered marks from use and a mostly pleasing mustard patina. Wrist has been broken and repaired. An attractive rifle with beautiful tiger maple. From the Louie Parker Collection.
