Some of those old, fine, SXS shotguns should not be restored. If you can fix the stock or replace it, then go ahead.
The barrels may not be so lucky. If Damascus, it is not safe to shoot or try to repair.

Make it look good and put it on display some where.

Unfortunately can't see that crack. Is it in the wrist? If its not too bad you can fill the crack with epoxy resin like is used in rifle bedding and clamp it back together. If its really bad you may want to cut it off at the crack ,clean up both sides ,drill a centered hole and insert a steel rod and then epoxy back together.
