The Rare, Unique, & Antique

James Purdey, London. Extraordinarily rare 15-bore, Double-barreled, flintlock Sporting Gun, #224, made for Rev. Edward Missenden Love, Rector of Somersby, Yarmouth, in 1820.

Interestingly,  the gun was, “brought into the Purdey shop by Rev. Love on 17 November 1827 to be cleaned for 5s0d, the barrels repaired and rebrowned for 15s0d and was supplied with 50 flints for 2s6d”.  That last quote was from Richard Beaumont’s excellent book entitled, “The Early Purdey’s”, which actually identifies the owner as, Rev. Edward Missenden Lane, and is either a misprint or simply an error in transcription from the early record book as the silver wrist escutcheon on #224, with the coat of arms of the lined Greyhound surmounted by the Latin inscription, “pro deo et veritate”, translated as, “For God and Truth”, has been well documented by other sources as that belonging to Missenden Love  rather than Lane.

I believe there are only a half-dozen original Purdey double-barreled flintlock guns known to exist, one owned by Purdey’s and perhaps another at the Tower Of London, along with another four in private hands, of which #224 is one. As I recall, at least two of the other three do not have the external safety sear feature.

Overall, breathtakingly beautiful and, perhaps, the rarest and finest British double barreled sporting gun, of any era, you will ever have the opportunity to put to your shoulder!

Wild Bill Elliot Spurs

Absolutely magnificent pair of gold and silver overlaid spurs made for old Western movie star, Wild Bill Elliot, ca. 1950. A real show stopper of a pair of spurs. The inner side of the swan neck shank is shiny silver and beautifully hand engraved with a classic scroll design even down to the radiating points of the spinning rowels. The outside is bright gold over oxidized silver to highlight the striking detail in brilliant contrast. Leather spur strap is impeccably tooled with a rope and basket weave pattern and fits over round buttons featuring the monogram BE in raised gold block letters. Spectacular craftsmanship with a legendary pedigree to match.

Very unusual gift for that western memorabilia enthusiast, and simply ideal for that special cowboy in your life. Click
