Two years ago I was fortunately able to ‘take over’ from one of our clients for another of our clients, a pair of Hartmann & Weiss 20g sidelock game guns which were booked for many years to be engraved by Alan Brown. The original engraving booking was for traditional fine game scenes which were drawn and offered by Alan. I asked if given no time constriction, we could do something a little more elaborate. I did this on the basis that if you have an engraving slot with whom are considered the best engravers of modern gunmaking, go for the most time as you possibly can and the if at all possible carved scroll and gold work. Alan generously agreed and the pair of guns are now, 20 or so months later here at the factory and looking fabulous.
