The Cogswell & Harrison records are accessed via four index volumes indicating on which page of which archive book the original records are to be found. The archive books consist of fifteen huge volumes each containing over 1000 handwritten pages. Some of the books are fragile and in a distressed condition. The information is partially coded but once deciphered is very comprehensive and can usually tell the date of completion, the model specifications & dimensions of craftsmanship, to whom it was sold and for how much. As these manuscripts are not computerised it is time consuming to go through them and decipher the information hence why we charge administration fees.
If you purchase Date of Manufacture only, we will email this date to you. If in the unlikely event this information is not available we will refund your complete €25.00
If you purchase Certificate of Origin, we will send you a signed, sealed certificate via An Post comprising all information available and we also include on it your name and address as the current owner. If in the unlikely event this information is not available we will refund your complete €55.00
Interesting Fact - The archives show that on June 14th 1933 the Duke of York, whom in 1936 ascended the throne of the United Kingdom and the British Dominions as King George VI, collected his custom built Cogswell & Harrison from our shop at 168 Piccadilly, London. Today Cogswell & Harrison continue to produce bespoke shotguns at its Hatfield workshop which is just 20 miles North from 168 Piccadilly, London.
