serial #146CS01852, 22 Short, 22'' barrel with a bright, excellent bore. The barrel is marked ''Made In Belgium'' and retains about 99% plus original blue with no visible signs of wear. The coin finished engraved receiver rates excellent and features relief cut foliate Grade III patterns that border hunting dog game scenes on each side: a pointer flushing ducks on the right, another flushing pheasants on the left, and a dog's head profile with retrieved mallard on the top. The engraving is signed ''D.DESSART'' on the right lower corner of the left side panel. The trigger retains all of its gold plating. The finely checkered walnut stocks rate excellent and have some nice figure. The original sights remain intact. A lovely example of master craftsmanship that is not only signed by the artist but is additionally more desirable due to the .22 Short chambering. A rare opportunity to obtain such a fine custom shop rifle that is in such a fine state of condition. (49022-60) {MODERN} (4000/6000) Sold For 5175.00
