Yeah. I do like those hips.

She was made sometime between 1912 and 1916. I couldn't see a proof date but know enough about the gun to know it's that time frame.

Boy, the engraving on that rifle is REALLY impressive! I especially like the way that the wild boars were done.

Very nice indeed. I really like the clamshell double rifles and that one is particularly nice. It has a lovely scroll back and the engraving is really well done.
