With swamped, round, two-stage barrels with turned girdles and brass front sights. The breech sections of the barrels, barrel tangs and flat bevelled locks are each chiselled in low relief with rococo ornament all against a matted gilt background. The center of the barrels' ornamentation is signed “PARIS.” The figured, molded, walnut, full-length stocks have cast and chased silver furniture. The large silver butt caps are decorated in relief with elaborate entwined trophies of arms above two recumbent lions with a grotesque mask beneath. With original iron tipped wooden ramrods.
Very good plus. The barrel is cleaned bright with some scattered corrosion spot marks, chiselled ornament and gilding slightly softened but retaining most of its gilding. The stock is very good with scattered age related storage and handling marks and blemishes. The silver mounts are very good, some softening to the high points of the cast and chased ornament. Mechanically excellent.
