I know I have said this before to you but I am going to say it again, you have some amazing pieces in your collection and appreciate you sharing pictures on here because most of them I would have never had a chance to see if you hadn't

In case you can't translate the text, it roughly translates to:
"Remember the deeds of your fathers" (around the figure)
"Federal (Swiss) Shooting festival, Glarus 1892"
Rest in Peace
