Need Everyone's Help on a Mystery Gun

Hey Everybody! I was the lucky recipient of some old black powder guns and some other items which were part of an estate that passed down to me. One of the items is an amazing looking gun, but I have no idea what it is? On the barrel of the gun, are the following words: "L. Hartmann in Hamburg" or "L. D. Hartmann in Hamburg". The engraving on the gun and scrollwork on the stock is amazing. One person said he thought it might be a Big Game Gun as it looks like a hammer gun of some type. I really don't know. It has two barrels that are interchangeable. One is 30" and the other is 34" long.

Here are some of the photos that I took tonight. Can anyone give me an idea what this gun may be? Thanks in advance!!!

Is there anything stamped on the breech or the chamber?

I found this site , and they seem to have extensive knowledge of old double guns. And hartmann & weiss' name has shown up in posts there. I would recommend joining up there and posting the pix for them to sort out. they might have better info.

RipJack: Thanks for all of the info on this gun. It's really a beautiful piece. I'm definitely going to take you up on your suggestion and join that other forum too, to see what someone there might have to say. The scrollwork and carving on the barrels and stock is amazing.
