This is the type of fowler that was built along the east coast from New York to Philadelphia, during the colonial period. Many fowlers of this type were modified to accept a bayonet and went to the field with colonial forces. This gun features a Colerain 44” 20 ga. (.620) smoothbore barrel, a Jim Chambers round face English lock, and the appropriate single trigger. The Walnut stock is carved in a “Fern” pattern behind the trigger guard and to the rear of the entry pipe. A tasteful shell carving is present behind the tang leading to a nicely engraved thumbpiece. The trigger guard. side plate and the butt plate are nicely engraved and antiqued. The Walnut stock is stained with a nice reddish undertone and appropriately antiqued to reflect some well cared for age.
