Traditionally the gun stock oval is a place where you will find the gun owners initials or family crest, it is a sort of signature spot for the owner, a message that ‘this is mine’!
The gold or silver oval can be treated in many ways and here I show a few examples of what can be achieved. From simple block lettering, elaborate engraved script, detailed engraved family crest, a full owners name and date, multi colour enamel crests and a single engraved item of game. Each and every one of these is individual and personal to the owner and my message is that whilst this is a simple and small area on the gun, do please give it consideration when asked what should go on it, we will always submit designs and help with ideas you can see what it will look like in advance.
