Click on images for enlarged versions.

This case is expertly crafted of fine American black walnut with finger-jointed corners, recessed panel lids and brass hardware. The case was made by "Doublegun Cases" of Farmington, New Hampshire. One side of the case is set up for a 26" barreled, 20 ga. shotgun (formerly holding a Fox) and includes a pair of custom-made brass swab snap caps, brass oil bottle, three ebony handled turn screws, ebony handled chamber brush, two piece ebony cleaning rod, along with a full complement of cleaning accessories. Inside the lid is a facsimile leather "AH Fox Gun Company" label. The opposite side of the case, features a separate-opening lid, accessible when the top lid is locked and the case is inverted. The interior is set up for a 28" barreled, 28 ga. shotgun (formerly holding a Poli) with a replication of the aforementioned accessories, however with a fourth turn screw rather than the chamber brush and the snap caps are brass and ebony. The interior of this lid features a leather Poli makers label. Each side has separate brass-keyed locks, the keys are included and there is a steel reinforced leather-covered handle for secure carrying. Included is a fitted faux-shearling backed leather zippered case to protect the exterior of this fine dual-shotgun case. There is an oval monogram plate atop the lid which is engraved and there are paper labels present inside the case lids with the specifications for both the prior Fox and Poli shotguns that were housed within (they both had 16" lengths of pull), they certainly could be removed or new labels affixed over them. The case itself rates excellent overall showing perhaps one or two tiny dings which are very unobtrusive and easily missed. Truly a very beautifully made and cleverly thought-out carry or presentation case which could easily be adapted to many makes of shotgun with similar dimensions, a replacement for-which would likely cost a couple thousand dollars to build today.
