I have in my shop right now a T. Barker rabbit ear 16ga double barrel shotgun. It is in very good condition and operational.
Can anyone here tell me anything about the Barker Company or it's origion? How old would this gun possibly be? Any ideas how much this gun may be worth?

Thanks,

There was no T.Barker company. It's a trade name handled by the H.D.Folsom company. They were made by Theate Freres if they are Belgium made hammer double guns. They were made by the Crescent Fire Arms Company if they are hammerless. I also have info that Iver Johnson made some too.

I'm betting that there's a belgian Proofmark under the barrels...

There is little to no collector value on these old hardware guns, and a prime specimen would probably not bring $200.
