On Ebay now: a beautiful Heiser leg o’mutton shotgun case…

H.H. Heiser Leg O'Mutton Double Barrel Shotgun Case
H.H. Heiser Leg O’Mutton Double Barrel Shotgun Case on Ebay

If you follow this blog at all, you know how much I like H.H. Heiser’s shotgun. From 1874 – 1955, the Hermann H. Heiser Saddlery Co. of Denver, Co., made some of the finest saddles, shooting accessories, and leather goods in the country.

Today, items by H.H. Heiser’s s are very collectible. The leather, basketweave leg o’mutton you see here was one of Heiser’s more popular products, and I can’t imagine a classier was to transport and protect a vintage side-by-side shotgun.

Most leg o’mutton cases were made with a thin leather exterior, a cardboard middle to give the case its shape, and a lightweight wool lining. But not Heisers. Their cases are made from saddle-grade leather throughout, and the finishing on all the details is excellent. And that’s why these cases command such premium prices today.

V.L. & A SPORTING GOODS, CHICAGO, ILL. Leather Leg O’Mutton Shotgun Case

It was retailed by Von Lengerke & Antoinne, or V L & A , of Chicago, IL. From 1891 and into the 1930s, V L & A retailed all sorts of firearms to all sort of people in the Chicago area.  In fact, two of the  Colt Thompson Machine Guns used in Al Capone’s infamous St. Valentine’s Day massacre were delivered to their notorious owners by Von Lengerke & Antoinne.

This second case was made by Brauer Bos of St. Louis, MO. This case looks pretty much new, so if may be better for a younger double like a 20g Browning Superposed and a small bore Winchester Model 21.
