This gun is by Charles Giddings. The Giddings family contained gunmakers and engravers in New York. They were apparently very skilled, but production must have been small. In roughly 50 years, I have seen two Giddings marked guns, one by Charles Giddings, and one by [his son ] George Giddings. I have heard of another George Giddings gun of unusual design.

Thanks so much for sharing. And I thought I was getting into esoteric Americana with my Tobin. What a magnificent piece!

No Pluto dogs or flying turnips, but that skeleton butt looks Parkeresque

That is one sweet hammer gun. I don't think I've ever seen one I liked more. "Beautiful" just doesn't do it justice.

Wonderful Daryl. I especially love the engraving overall, and those Setters on the Left are terrific. The Pointers need enlarging to see them better, and I am sure they compliment the Setters
