Some of the most beautiful work of this craftsman, and many others, are in this book “Liège Gunmakers through their Work. 1800 - 1950”.
For more detail see: LIEGE GUNMAKERS
It acts of a shotgun to percussion, two guns in table, front locks.
The photographs do not make it possible to say some more.
Spangled ELG in a crowned oval: acceptance of the test (1846/1893)
32: should be a job number.
The weapon must probably carry other punches of the bench of tests of Liege, but they are invisible on the photographs.
Mark "SCHEPERS A LIEGE" indicates that it acts of a gun of the manufacturer of weapons SCHEPERS Francois, registered voter with the bench of tests of Liege of 1844 to 1860. He was active in Liege street Mont Saint Martin, 54.
From 1857 to 1860, it deposited ten Belgian patents for improvements, modifications and additions with the shotguns.
