Description

This information has been provided by the current owner "Guns were made 1937 with 16 bore barrels and the 20 bore barrels coming approximately 1979.
Both pairs of barrels are 28 inch and barely shot from factory testing.
At the time Royal Brevis was a line of Holland’s created by their absolute best craftsman and did not continue post WWII.
I understand this to be the finest small calibre example still in existence and possibly the only sub gauge seen on market in over 20 years.
The guns were purchased by me from an estate in the US and re-stocked by Adam Davies in the UK in 2018/19 to suit my specific gun fit. This can be provided also as I still have the paperwork from West London Shooting Ground.
Based on what I’ve seen at both Purdey and Holland’s in heritage guns I would be expecting a number north of £120,000 plus VAT as applicable, these are far superior to anything else placed on market in the last three years for both brands and represent near new condition for 82 year old artwork. I have also kept the original stocks albeit they are quite short.
The guns are presented in an original Holland display case branded YH and with the 20 bore barrels in a separate case. "
