J. & W. Tolley is an English gunmaker of some notoriety, mostly noted for large bore waterfowlers. From about 1894 through 1903 they occupied a London address on New Bond St. where this gun, sn7918 built in 1901, was born. The earliest of the Tolley guns were not of the quality that they became in 1894 with their appointment as gunmakers to the King of Portugal and to the Persian Royal family. These are not casual appointments, and the quality can be seen in their guns from the London address after 1894. A careful review of the photographs will delight the knowledgeable and novice alike.
