The receiver, trigger guard, extra long tang, operating lever, forend latching hardware and decorative forearm insert have 100% coverage of magnificent arabesque floral scroll engraved by A. Contessa. This incredible engraving, with it's dark background shading, is world class and some of the finest ever executed. The trigger guard features the gold inlaid script initials "MC".
The straight English stock and beavertail forend are of fabulously figured Circassian exhibition walnut. The 'almost' maroon color of the background and the definition of the 'almost' black grain are truly outstanding. Full checkering on the butt and wrap-around checkering on the grip and forearm are highlighted by diamond patterned accents.
This work of art is part of a matched set that was manufactured for Marshall Field, grandson of the famous retailer. The last photo shows the 20 gauge companion gun which is GA listing #957441817. A buyer who wishes to purchase both guns in the set will receive the custom made, takedown, leather coach case shown in the photo at no extra charge.
