Some of the most beautiful work of this craftsman, and many others, are in this book “Liège Gunmakers through their Work. 1800 - 1950”.

Mark DF Crossed of an arrow deposited the 12.08.1881, belongs well to DUMOULIN Frères Boulevard de la Sauvenière, 89 in Liege, registered to the house of test of Liège of 1877 to 1894.

They deposited 6 Belgian patents of 1879 to 1890.

The inventor is DECORTIS-FRAIKIN Gustave manufacturer of weapons with CHERATTE (province of Liege) which deposited 6 patents of 1881 to 1891 including one concerning a system of rifle with hammer making breech.

Not having been able to examine the patent, it is not possible for me to confirm that it is about this weapon.
