Engraving  

Detail: Traditional Fine ‘Rose & Scroll’ engraving pattern.
Although this general description is used to describe a lot of different styles of engraving, it has been used here to describe an extremely fine and detailed pattern which consists of a combination of light small English scroll and clusters of flowers (usually roses). it is deliberately understated and uses the most commons style of engraving decoration on many British sporting guns in the 19th and early 20th century.
Finish: Retaining some of the original case colour hardening
