I would say, without being sure about the engraving pattern or other custom features between 40 and 50K, for the pair.

After looking at the photos, and in 1987, I retract my guesstimation and say between 50 to 60K. I would be interesting to know, but to those who keep score in the checkbook a bit differently than I do, $135,000 for this pair is not a bad price.
Really nice guns are a great investment.

If these went for auction at Christie's or Sotheby's...what price would they go for?

Hand engraved Holland and Holland seems redundant

Sure, they're pretty, but honestly- what can these guns do that can't be done with my stoger or spartan side by sides?

OX,
That's easy. They can make people drool, demonstrate to others that you have excellent taste in shotguns, appreciate and can afford the finer things in life and don't want any junk in your house.
Anything else?

Have them scatter guns been in the field? If not, what's the use of all that flare with no BOOM?

Additional Info

Anyone who says guns can't be high art hasn't laid their eyes on this spectacular, custom-made matched pair of Holland & Holland shotguns commissioned in 1984 by a wealthy Texas businessman. These bespoke beauties took three years to complete, and feature some of the most stunning and detailed engraving ever seen on a shotgun.
