I have always liked guns with a unique theme and this pair of Holland & Holland Royal Deluxe guns named ‘The Twenties’ certainly slot into that department. This pair of guns were made in the early 1990’s, proofed in 1991 and completed around ’93 I would guess. They were a built for a discerning female client who played an integral part in the design of the guns with David Winks. David managed the gunroom at Holland & Holland at the time and was a man who knew how to make great guns, never hesitating to return guns to the factory if not satisfied with the wood or finish. He certainly excelled himself with the pair of blanks on these guns!
This pair of 20g 27″ barrel sidelock guns are engraved by Phil Coggan who, to this day, remains one of the countries leading engravers. The Art Deco style engravings have 4 distinct Twenties scenes and portraits of ladies in art deco style clothing.
A unique pair of guns, in perfect condition and ready to gift to a deserving wife or lady friend! Available on our used gun site here.
