Joseph Vorisek's "Shotgun Markings: 1895-1940, A List" shows BALDWIN & CO. LTD, a New Orleans, La. importer of Belgian made double barrels.
Also shown is A. BALDWIN & CO. LIMITED with various patent dates, Dec. 1, '91;
Aug. 11,' 96; May 27, '02 either singularly or combined on shotguns manufactured by W. H. Davenport Arms Company.
W. H. Davenport Arms Company operated under that name from 1891 to 1910, but had been bought by Hopkins and Allen Arms Company in 1902 who continued the Davenport line.
Davenport doubles are seldom seen in the marketplace.
