Description

1854-1869 English Irwin Wallas Of Wigton & Carlisle (Cumberland) Double Barrelled 12 Bore Muzzle Loading Percussion Shotgun. Sn 21010 - 21010

Wallas were a large family of Wigton & Carlisle Cumberland based gunmakers working from 1827 through to C1913. Irwin Wallas is recorded at Ludgate Lane Wigton between 1854 and 1869 (see page 357 of British Gunmakers Vol 2 by Brown). This is a very good double barrel shotgun made by Irwin Wallas. It has all original Walnut furniture. The shotgun with double 30”, brown wash steel barrels, has double hammers & triggers. It measures 46” overall. The barrel has a small brass bead fore sight and the barrel rib is faintly signed ‘Wallas Wigton & Carlisle’. The cocking and firing actions are crisp. Both action plates are signed ‘I. Wallas’ within foliate decorations. The barrel’s smooth bores have just light staining consistent with age. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique obsolete calibre shotgun no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 21010
