RigbyMauser, thanks for resharing this thread. Had forgotten about it.

4717 views and only 6 replies/comments .... very sad IMO.

Beautiful guns !!!!!! Interesting how the Purdy shotgun barrels are positioned in the case, one is on it’s side and the other is resting barrels upright. Usually both are the same? I bet there’s a story there, still beautiful guns !!!!!!!!

Wow - never seen these rifles before either!
What a great pair to have in a battery.
That exquisite engraving just tops it all off nicely.
As to the guns, they are certainly the equal of those rifles in quality without a shadow of a doubt
Thanks for sharing these truly magnificent pieces
