A masterpiece, as good as it gets in terms of an inlayed Kentucky Rifle from this maker and probably his finest work. 109 pieces of silver adorn this fine percussion rifle to include a huge spread-winged eagle on the cheek piece, standing Indian with rifle in back of the cheekpiece and a small percussion pistol behind the lock-plate. Extremely thin and dainty with an over-all length of almost 57" and in 44 caliber. The wood is an outstanding piece of curly maple and all embellishments are excecuted in a most tasteful manner. Signed "John Parks Jr." on top of the barrel. Not an expensive, big, carved early gun but a top-of-the-food-chain example of an inlayed Kentucky from the Susquehanna region and worthy of the finest collection of that type or interest.
