Signed, Texas Themed Bulino Game Scene Engraved, and Gold Inlaid James Purdey & Sons .410 Bore Sidelock Over/Under Ejector Shotgun with Case - Serial no. 30511, 410 gauge, 28 inch solid rib bbl., blue/coin finish, walnut stock.

Every piece that they build is a work of art, deserving of placement in the finest collection, and even so, this

This incredible, delicately shaped .410 bore shows off outstanding decoration paying homage to the Lone Star State and is unlike anything the writer has seen before. This is a truly special piece and one will not see its like for years to come.
