ornate engravings huh? You could probably search for "leather stamp patterns (http://www.google.com/search?q=leather+stamp+patterns&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi&biw=1680&bih=890)" or "leathercraft" and get a lot of the same types of patterns.


Often you can find stamp samples and use those as brushes in sculpting apps...

http://firearmsengraving.com/ has some decent resolution reference images for this kind of thing.

Googling for Holland & Holland double rifles may produce results as well. Or double riles in general, as they tend towards being expensive and ostentatious.

You can buy books with this sort of thing in. full of it actually. My coworker ordered a bunch from Amazon last year, I scanned them and used those for a gun I did. The tricky part is making them fit complex shapes though.

unless you're in a real hurry I would make it myself - always good to learn how to do these things anyway :)

Filigree (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=filigree&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi) Have at the internet, do your touchups in ps or illustrator. Make your own design from the bits. :)
