Item Details

A superb Joseph Lang Mahogany Case. Made from Mahogany with an inlaid brass ring carry handle. Inside is lined with the original green baize with makers label to the inside lid, still retaining the original key. C1890

Joseph Lang was a very influential figure in country sports and the development of recreational guns. He first set up his own business the “Gun and Pistol Repository” in 1821, eventually buying out the entire stock of his prior employer the gunmaker Alexander Wilson in 1825 to becomes Londons largest gun dealer. During this time Joseph Lang sold the highest quality sporting guns, including those produced by James Purdey.

His name still lives on as Atkin Grant and Lang which is an amalgamation of three of the best and most prolific shotgun and rifle makers in the world.

This fine piece of sporting history is in good condition, slight damage to the baize, which is to be expected due to the age. This case would make a lovely addition for any collector, or as a display case.
