#813- Re-creation restocked fowling piece

The re-creation of a restocked fowling piece, done in the old northeast by a Dutch influenced master from a miscellany of assorted British, Dutch and German iron parts.

The trigger guard is Dutch, probably from an early officer’s musket, the pipes are German as is the sidelock plate. Both probably came off a Jaeger rifle. The French flintlock is about as  pretty  a  lock as there is. It’s not highly decorated but the lines and function are elegant.  The deeply curved under-belly of the buttstock is typical of Dutch influenced guns.

The bas-relief carving on this gun is simple yet has an understated elegance.
