Chas. I, like you, am very interested in Muzzle Loading Firearms. It seems to me that the earlier guns were very often heavly engraved.Two possible reasons may have been the cost of guns & "statis."
As guns became more available to the "common person, then the heavly engraved ones were for "elite & presentation. An example was the engraved guns of Colt (see "Steel Canvas" by R.L.Wilson
