The Duke of Hamilton's Shotgun

The Duke of Hamilton's Shotgun

This gun was custom-made for Alexander Douglas-Hamilton, the 10th Duke of Hamilton (1767-1852) in 1842. It is a single barrel shotgun made by James Purdey & Sons of London.

Purdey's was established in 1814 and has been making shotguns and rifles for the Royal Family since 1838. Still in existence today, the guns are made to custom order and by hand.

The Duke of Hamilton enjoyed a reputation as a dandy and collector of fine art and antiquities. This gun would have been an expensive purchase, and befitting of the Duke's reputation as connoisseur.
