Original Pre Civil War Era London Import Van Wart Double Barrel Shotgun. Henry Van Wort was an importer from Birmingham, England who supplied Arms to the South. There are many documented guns just like this one being used by Confederate Forces. This example has a beautiful overall patina with full length barrels. The wood stock is in good shape with minor bumps and bruises. Each Lockplate is marked with the Van Wart stamp. Mechanics are good and each hammer clicks in both postitions. Small repair to the brass inlay under the butt of the stock. Please see all photos.
