Built to Purdey specification by the state Tula Armoury, the gun is one of a limited number produced for high ranking officials and presentation to overseas leaders. The gun was presented to Prime Minister Harold Macmillan by Nikita Krushchev during the historic 1959 visit to Moscow at the height of the Cold War. It is of superb quality and is exquisitely finished with a presentation gold plaque set in to the stock, and it remains unused in its original presentation case. It has remained in the family ever since. During a period of extreme tension between the East and the West, the visit was remarkable as it was the first visit of a major Western leader to the USSR since the Second World War. Harold Macmillan was committed to curbing the arms race and played a major role in negotiating the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty of 1963, the first important treaty signed between the US, USSR and Britain since the end of the Second World War. ✺ £20000 - 30000

246 detail

According to the London Protocol of 1944, the Free State of Brunswick was supposed to become part of the British Zone of occupation in Germany. U.S. forces conquered the region in April 1945 and it was handed to British forces on 1st July 1945. However on 22nd July the British effected a territorial redeployment to shorten the zonal border that allowed Blankenburg Castle, the Brunswick seat, to fall in to the Russian Zone. The British army helped the ducal family to evacuate the Castle by sending troops and 30 trucks to allow them to remove their chattels. The guns were presented to Colonel Paul McConnell, of the Cheshire Regiment who was responsible for rescuing the Duke before the arrival of the Russians. ✺ £5000 - 8000

The following two lots are of recent manufacture and remain new and unused. The first lot will be offered with the option of buying the second lot at the same price to make a pair, if the buyer of the first lot only wants a single gun, then the second lot will be offered as the next lot. The vendor makes the following statement: "The next two lots comprise a pair of unused and very fine 12 bore Charles Lancaster O/U pinless sidelock ejectors and a purpose English made case for a single gun. They have single non-selesctive triggers with rolled edge trigger guards, for the right handed. They have 29" barrels and though engraved by different engravers, both guns have been decorated with the exquisite style, known as the 600 pattern and so favoured by James Purdey. The engraving work as been executed to an exceptional standard. Whilst these guns are a true pair, they are being offered for sale with the option of being sold as singles" "It is unlikely that there are another two such guns in existence, and it is believed that they are unique, being O/Us and having pinless locks. All the work carried out including the finishing, has been to the highest of London standards". "Should the first gun be successfully sold, then the second gun will be offered to the buyer at the same cost as the first. In the event that the guns are sold as a pair, then the single case will also be offered with them, at no cost. If they are sold as singles, then the case will be by separate negotiation". "Both guns come compete with a 5 year no-quibble mechanical warranty".

GAVin GARDinER LiMitED’S AuthEnticitY GuARAntEE If Gavin Gardiner Limited sells an item of Property which is later shown to be a “Counterfeit”, subject to the terms below Gavin Gardiner Limited will rescind the sale and refund the Buyer the total amount paid by the Buyer to Gavin Gardiner Limited for that Property, up to a maximum of the Purchase Price. The Guarantee lasts for one (1) year after the date of the relevant auction, is for the benefit of the Buyer only and is non-transferable. “Counterfeit” means an item of Property that in Gavin Gardiner Limited’s reasonable opinion is an imitation created with the intent to deceive over the authorship, origin, date, age, period, culture or source, where the correct description of such matters is not included in the catalogue description for the Property. Property shall not be considered Counterfeit solely because of any damage and/or restoration and/or modification work (including, but not limited to, recolouring, refinishing or rebarreling). Please note that this Guarantee does not apply if either:(i) the catalogue description was in accordance with the generally accepted opinions of scholars and experts at the date of the sale, or the catalogue description indicated that there was a conflict of such opinions; or

To claim under this Guarantee, the Buyer must:(i) notify Gavin Gardiner Limited in writing within one (1) month of receiving any information that causes the Buyer to question the authenticity or attribution of the Property, specifying the lot number, date of the auction at which it was purchased and the reasons why it is believed to be Counterfeit; and (ii) return the Property to Gavin Gardiner Limited in the same condition as at the date of sale and be able to transfer good title in the Property, free from any third party claims arising after the date of the sale. Gavin Gardiner Limited has discretion to waive any of the above requirements. Gavin Gardiner Limited may require the Buyer to obtain at the Buyer's cost the reports of two independent and recognised experts in the relevant field and acceptable to Gavin Gardiner Limited. Gavin Gardiner Limited shall not be bound by any reports produced by the Buyer, and reserves the right to seek additional expert advice at its own expense. In the event Gavin Gardiner Limited decides to rescind the sale under this Guarantee, it may refund to the Buyer the reasonable costs of up to two mutually approved independent expert reports, provided always that the costs of such reports have been approved in advance and in writing by Gavin Gardiner Limited.

(ii) the only method of establishing at the date of the sale that the item was a Counterfeit would have been by means of processes not then generally available or accepted, unreasonably expensive or impractical; or likely to have caused damage to or loss in value to the Property (in Gavin Gardiner Limited’s reasonable opinion); or (iii) there has been no material loss in value of the Property from its value had it accorded with its catalogue description.
