Frank House "Nechasin"

This Reading style rifle was created by Frank House to go along with a sculpture that he an his wife Lally created. The sculpture entitled "Nechasin" can be seen in the book "Following the Tradition" by Gordon Barlow. The rifle is striking in its simplicity. There is a minimal amount of carving and embellishment and the entire piece has been beautifully aged. It is reminiscent of the type of rifle Boone might have carried with him into Kentucky.
