Lot 204 MASQUELIER A SCARCE BELGIAN 12-BORE “SUPERBRITTE” SIDE-OPENING OVER AND UNDER GUN, NO. 279 28 1/2-inch monobloc barrels with 2 3/4-inch chambers, about 1/2 and full choke borings, narrow file cut ventilated rib and side extensions, the barrels signed “Manufacture d’Armes Deluxe, Masquelier, Liège-Belgique”, the rounded frame and push-down side lever engraved with foliate scrollwork entwined with flowing ribbons and rose bouquets, the trigger plate signed by the engraver R. Smeets, 15-inch well figured stock, 6lb. 14oz. weight, Belgian nitro proof

Patented by Theophile Britte in 1931, the Superbritte side-opening over and under gun was produced in relatively limited numbers prior to 1939 and it is thought that as few as 250 examples were manufactured. Manufactured by Britte, a renowned supplier to the Belgian trade, who counted Lebeau Courally and Auguste Francotte as customers, the guns were usually retailed by Jules Bury and by Masquelier - both dealers and manufacturers of high grade arms in Liège. With its distinctive action and very low centre of gravity, the gun has very quick and pointable handling characteristics. The action is as shallow as it can be and reloading is remarkably quick. Engraved examples are especially scarce as the majority were finished in a plain way with a blacked frame and border engraving. £14000 - 18000

Each lot is available for examination before sale. Bidders are responsible for carrying out examinations and research before sale to satisfy themselves over the condition of lots and accuracy of descriptions.

(b) All oral and/or written information provided to Bidders relating to lots, including descriptions in the catalogue, condition reports or elsewhere are statements of GG’s opinion and not representations of fact. Estimates may not be relied on as a prediction of the selling price or value of the lot and may be revised from time to time at GG’s absolute discretion. 4.

5. BIDDING AT AUCTION

(a) GG has absolute discretion to refuse admission to the auction. Before sale, Bidders must complete a Registration Form and supply such information and references as GG requires. Bidders are personally liable for their bid and are jointly and severally liable with their principal, if bidding as agent (in which case GG’s prior and express consent must be obtained).

(b) GG advises Bidders to attend the auction, but GG will endeavour to execute absentee written bids provided that they are, in GG’s opinion, received in sufficient time and in legible form.

(c) When available, written and telephone bidding is offered as a free service at the Bidder’s risk and subject to GG’s other commitments; GG is therefore not liable for failure to execute such bids. Telephone bidding may be recorded. 6. IMPORT, EXPORT AND COPYRIGHT RESTRICTIONS

(c) Subject to Condition 7(a), the contract between the Buyer and the Seller is concluded on the striking of the auctioneer's hammer. (d) Any post-auction sale of lots shall incorporate these Conditions of Business.

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

(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. 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

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) 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.
