Extensively engraved by Ken Hunt on mutedly coin-finished receiver: four gold-inlaid ducks landing on a cattail marsh on the left lockplate, four grouse flushing in a woodland scene on the right lockplate, three gold-inlaid woodcock rising on the underside and two gold pigeons on the triggerguard. Two tiny small-game animals hidden amongst the foliage. The landscapes of layer upon layer of grasses, brush, trees, forest and distant misty skies are absolutely stunning. And, all surrounded with deep-carved and burnished acanthus scroll. Maker's name flush-gold-inlaid in Old English lettering on both sides of receiver. Serial number inlaid in gold on triggerguard tang. Signed by Ken Hunt on both lockplates. Ken Hunt at his finest; perhaps his masterpiece. Weight: 7lbs, 7oz.
