Bridge Gun Co was a trade name used by Shapleigh Hardware of St. Louis, Missouri, on guns by several makers. The "Belgian Laminated Steel" suggests that it was made in that country, and the crowned-oval-ELG* mark shows for certain that it was proof-tested there sometime after 1893. The import of these hardware store guns pretty much ended with the start of WWI, so you can say it is a century old, +/- a decade. It probably doesn't need a full refinishing. Remove any active rust with gun oil and copper wool, oil the metal parts lightly and use a good furniture polish on the wood. Then retire it to the mantle.
