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

A sympathetic quartet!
"Le Novo" or "Novo", patent of Dieudonné OURY (collapsible handle), manufactured, inter alia, by the Derkenne workshops in Mortier. Would have been put on the market (catalogues) by Galand (inventive removal system to key used on others older weapons).
Also manufactured by HDH (Henrion, Dassy and Heuschen), Ancion-Marx, A. Godefroid, RIGA George....
LAM in a triangle is of course the mark of Léopold ANCION-MARX street Grangagnage, 26-28 in LIEGE, deposited the 12.10.1897.
CHRISTOPHE is the arms manufacturer of Brussels of the alley of the Queen who replaced JANSSENS. The absence of R is an error!
Another Novo unsigned
