It is indeed a Petrik, and a higher grade/finish than normally seen....French gunmaker/designer....
I think his full name was Boniface Petrik.....

Remington engineer and designer Crawford C. Loomis "borrowed" heavily from Petrik's patents in the late 20's-early 30's while bringing the Model 32 O/U into production.

Fanciest Petrik I have seen. I don't know if that means much, since there isn't a lot of interest in them. I would like to own one.

About 10 years ago, I sold a 16ga. Petrik to Deiter Kreighoff at the Vintage Cup in Sandanona. It was in very nice shape and I seem to recall he paid about $1000-1200. Your gun is a higher grade side plated gun. The dent hurts but I'll take a flyer and estimate it at around 2K at auction. There is no established market for a gun such as this.It could bring more or less! It is considered an forerunner/inspiration for the Model 32 Rem and all similar guns that followed.
