SN 215393P. Cal. 32. 3-7/8″ rnd bbl with eagle N proofs and 60 degree safety. This exhibition engraved and 2-pc ivory stocked Walther pistol should have no rival in its elaborate embellishment with its deep relief, scrolls and foliate engraving with numerous Gothic lions, horned beast and chiseled roping amount to a full coverage of the artist’s work. This pattern of embellishment may be found in James Rankin’s Engraved, Presentation and Standard Models, Vol. II, on pg. 54. Gun is housed in its period green velvet lined form fitted display case with the exterior being of a brown linen type material with three Geco dummy functioning cartridges and wiping rod. CONDITION: Extremely fine, and showing no evidence of actual use. Very slight finish loss is evident on edges of magazine base and at extreme ends of muzzle and backstrap from having been stored in its presentation case. 2-pc ivory grips are equally fine with slight age discoloration, with right grip having evidence of a very minor crack at top forward leading edge. Case is very good with staining evident from firearm residing in case. Linen type material has slight distress and foxing on edges but is otherwise solid. A finer example would be very difficult to ever obtain. 52700-30 TDW (8,000-12,000) C&R – Lot 2020
