A good high quality double gun case with oak carcass covered in leather hide with brass corners, made by William Powell & Son. The interior is fitted for 2 shotguns with 29" barrels and finished in red baize. The lid is embossed to the outside with the owner's initials ‘M.R.G.I.’ and inside is the William Powell & Son paper trade label ‘ William Powell & Son, Gun & Rifle Manufacturers, 35 Carrs Lane, Birmingham’. The carry handle has been strengthened with some new leather and there are two new outer leather straps. A fine piece in good condition.
