This is a magnificent special order, custom built, engraved and gold inlaid, Model 21 double barrel shotgun with two sets of barrels and case manufactured by Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing Company.

The receiver is nicely engraved with floral scroll patterns surrounding a gold inlaid hunting dog on each side in an oval panel, and two pheasants in a wooded scene on the bottom.
