Magnificent four piece patchbox, clearly reminiscent of the York school, with six piercings and elaborate delicate engraving. Configured with slender wood strip between the side plates and the lid. Brass pin escutcheons each fastened with two tiny screws. Absolutely perfect condition and a really beautiful little rifle.
