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 is here about a rifle-toy with detonator. This toy was intended in the area of Liege for the wise children the morning of December 6 for the Nicolas Saint.
This part became much less current than at the time and is especially interesting by the mark of arms manufacturer whom it carries.
RW in an oval: mark of the manufacturer Rene WARNANT (BE 1912/1956)
Fabrication liégeoise (Liège manufacture): without comment.
