Great gun Dean. That must be a VERY early gun as the bird sort of resembles a Pterodactyl. Nice, none the less.

Repeated here is Dean's statement and photo that he posted.

That gorgeous gun is one of only a couple Bernard barreled B grades. Although the flying bird is stylized rather than a true representation of a real bird, look at the deep cut rondell engraving in back of it. A fabulous gun.

Notice the 'serpent' banner bearing the Parker Bros. logo. The engravers at Parker Brothers were given the liberty of expression on the higher grades... within the parameters of 'good taste' of course.

WOW some great examples!! The great thing about Parker engraving is all the variability! Here is my example Parker name just in a straight line. Simple but
elegant in my opinion.

Craig, your 1904 Parker is a wonderful example of the kind of art that ushered in the Art Deco period. Art Deco began in Europe in about 1908 and didn't become popular here until after WW-I. The border engraving everywhere on the frame is exquisite and the scroll engraving on your Grade 5 is wonderful.

Here are 4 more. Great thread!

Sorry about the pictures, they looked better before I uploaded them? I had to click on them after uploading to enlarge it to be able see the "Parker Bros." that was so clear here on my computer. Sorry.
