W Richards was the trade name used by one of the Belgium manufacturers in the late 19th & early 20th century This was an attempt to draw upon the prestige of Wesley Richards which was a well known and expensive British shotgun maker.
These gun invariably have damascus or laminated steel barrels are usually in 12 ***** and are very cheaply made. The Belgiun gunmakers turned out a lot of cheap junk during this period and didn't have anywhere's near the reputation for quality they have today.
Do NOT attempt to fire this shotgun since it's basically a wall hanger.
