Default Some beautiful setters

As they say, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder", but I've always found most setters engraved on Parkers to not look, well, very setter like.. IMO though the setters on this BHE look exceptional.

I agree. Here's one of mine - very close in execution... and have you seen the Coronation Kennels ad on page 38 of the Autumn 2016 Issue of Parker Pages?

The Setter's confirmation on a Parker Reproduction DHE ain't too shabby either, even the protuberence of its occipital bone has been taken into account.

I think the dog in the background on the left side is a, "Dropper".

Beautiful Craig. You showed me that gun in the field at Hausmann's last year.

A very, very nice gun with exceptional engraving.

These setters on a Baker that John Allen has listed for sale are pretty spectacular.
