Good Grief what a mechanism for any era let alone that old. Simply amazing. I wonder how many bazillion hours of labor went into the making.
Thanks for showing.
First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
I think I saw those on Pawn Stars
Faith, Hope & Charity
Obviously made by someone of a high caliber........not just bird shot
Absolutely amazing. Great find, Don.
When are you gonna go pick them up?
When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro. - Hunter S. Thompson
When the weird get going, they start their own forum. - Vaughn McMillan
Absolutely fantastic bit of workmanship I will take 2 pair please
Utterly amazing what a masterpiece. Would have thought they were worth more than the estimate, people have paid stupid prices for some celebrity junk you would think this incredible artwork would fetch some real high dollars.
The bird is just stunning especially when you see it in slow mo and consider how it works given it was not sitting on the barrel in the first place
Thanks Don what a neat find.
