This is an outstanding Prussian Daly from the pre-war era. All of the metal including the trigger guard, operating lever, tang, forend hardware and the grip cap are profusely covered in acanthus leaf scroll engraving. This same scroll surrounds game scenes on the receiver of pointing dogs on the left, a covey of quail on the right and ducks on the bottom. The metal exhibits a mottled tarnished pewter and smokey grey patina which adds to the original deep relief engraving and makes it more appealing now, than decades ago when first created.
Dark, dark Turkish walnut was selected for the pistol grip stock and three piece forearm. Truly outstanding fler-de-lis checkering is generously spread over the grip surfaces. A narrow wedge of horn is inlaid at the tip of the forearm and the gold inset oval in the toeline has yet to be initialed. The barrels retail 95% of their blue, the bores are bright & excellent and the wood has seen exceptional care. This gun may be better now that when it was made.
