Joseph Loy engraved some Ithaca's, Lefevers and maybe one or two more. His engraving style of the dogs he did, in my opinion, are some of the very best. Can folks please post pictures of dogs, especially setters, that are known to be his work?

Thanks very much -

Loy's dogs are my favorites in that period. His lines are clean and the dogs look like you can feel them trembling, waiting for the bird to flush. I had a pointer that would stand on point still as a statute but you could see she was busting with energy, waiting for the action.

Some engravers of this era seem to have dead dogs, hound dogs and flying turnips as their trademarks. Some did very nice scroll on Aubreys and others. But Loy's dogs always make me stop and look at them.

No pictures, but another lover of Loy's dogs. His renditions were just wonderful.

I don't know if this is Loy or not. Ithaca Flues grade 3 20 gauge

I know you asked for Setters, but here is the Pointer from the flip side

Thanks Fred. If it has eyelashes it is probably Loy's work. I haven't seen that gun before Fred, but then, you told me that you had picked up a few more since the Worcester 28 ga. grade 2.

Here is his engraving on my Remington EEO. It is a little hard to see the details but it is very fine engraving.

Looks like the 'eyelashes' appearing on both the guns shown above are Loy's initials as former poster here Robert Chambers once told us...Geo
