Fine Antique and Modern Firearms
For two years, the Munich auction house's online-only auction has attracted buyers from all over the world. "Fine Antique and Modern Firearms" is the most extensive catalogue with just under 900 lots, all set to come under the hammer on Wednesday, 2 February 2022, from 10 a.m. Needless to say, as in every auction, the lineup includes a number of stunning pieces.
A deluxe percussion double-barrelled shotgun deserves a special mention. Made in Belgium or France, the rifle with lot number 9078 is sure to impress, thanks to the fine animal engravings, graceful tendrils and floral decoration on the lock plate. The guide price of 1,400 euros includes the original case, lined in red velvet, and the matching, original tool set, with all parts complete. These consist of a multi-function implement (screwdriver/nipple wrench), the three-part cleaning rod with a threaded bullet puller, a wadding iron and a bullet mould.
