Circa 1978. Tomasoni signed and engraved custom-made pair, manufactured in Italy by Ivo Fabbri. These shotguns are constructed to be of the finest in quality and design in the world. They are made on a bespoke made-to-order basis only. There is approximately a 6 to 8 year waiting period on the shotguns after the order has been placed. This particular pair of shotguns feature rust blued, nitro proved, 27 - 7/8" barrels made from "VACUM ARC REMELTING STEEL" which is engraved on the top of the right barrel. Left barrel is engraved and in gold reads "IVO FABBRI", "THE PROFESSIONAL". The 2 - 3/4" chambered chopper lump barrels are built with ejectors and a finely filed matte flat top tapered rib. The ribs are numbered "1" and "2" in gold at breech and fit with round brass front bead sights. Barrels are stamped "18.4", "KG1.410". Flats are marked with "CAM.70", "I FABBRI", "3321", "3322", and with Italian proofs "AD". Chokes are Full and Improved Modified. The 6 pin coin finished side lock actions with cocking indicators are decorated with exquisitely executed fantasy-themed hunt scenes, stylized depictions of Diana, the Goddess of the Hunt with dogs and women in semi-nude mythological village scene, signed “Inc C. Tomasoni” on both sides of each receiver. "IVO FABBRI" at bar. The floorplates are similarly engraved and bordered by bold foliate scrolls as well as the trigger guard bow and barrel fences. Top levers are marked with gold inlays “1” and “2”. The single inertia triggered action are non-auto safe. "SICURA" is engraved at engraved safe slide. Guns are mounted with spectacular semi-glossed marbled exhibition grade Turkish walnut, finely sharp checkered pistol grips, vacant gold initial shields, orange Silvers recoil pads, checkered beavertail forend with floral scroll engraved steel Anson styled push button releases with gold inlays of “1” and “2” on engraved escutcheons, gold pigeon and matched engraved forend iron. Interior forend metal marked with individuals guns serial numbers "3321" and "3322". This pair of guns has been featured twice on the cover of the “American Shotgunner”: first in April 1981 and again in June 1986, and is accompanied by cover art from each issue. This matched pair of side-by-side Fabbri pigeon guns are housed in a fine 2-gun leather luggage case. CONDITION: Excellent. Guns appear to have very little use as rust blued barrels have some handling marks. A few minor handling marks on buttstock and forend. Both guns retain mostly all of their newer finish. Case is in very good condition with few scuffs. Beautiful pair of game guns. CP
