Wonderful side by side built, in my opinion, by one of the best Belgian gunmakers, engraving by H. Corombelle in his best years, the fine grain briarwood stock, grade 4, is perfectly refinished, the barrels are given to Brancquaert by Defourny, in few words, the best you can find in a high-quality side by side. The gun, this one, is better described in: “I grandi fucili Europei” by G. Lupi.
