The Engraved Parts of a 20g Westley Richards Droplock. Engraved by Sebastian Lehy.

It is always very nice to get a beautifully executed gun back from a new engraver who we have used for the first time. Thank you very much Sebastian, may there be many more!

    Absolutely magnificent, I can hardly wait to see the finished gun. These scroll back drop locks are definitely the most elegant SxS ever made.

    Looks great. Is there any significance to the morel on the bottom plate?

      Thanks, I am not sure, trying to find out if client wanted it or if it is a engravers mark! A bit strange for a mark so I assume it was requested!

    Morning Simon,

    Very nicely done Sebastian!! Simon this is the first time I have seen the action of a gun in this vice like apparatus. When time permits would you please shine a little light on it. Interesting that it appears to have some engraving almost like a reference? thank you in advance for the effort Sir. One more question is this action going to be Case Colored now are is it complete?

    In Christ

      Hi Vance,

      This was the engraving vice that Rash used whilst here at WR. The little engravings and inlays are as Neill mentioned in a comment above, doodles or tests. These vices are a big heavy rotating object. Peter Spode is doing a little blog post for me on 'how they are used', as soon as he has it I will post it! The action will be case coloured like all our guns are, I am not sure if the client will leave it on or take it off!

    Lovely work indeed, very much to my taste. I also love the engraving on the vice, is this the engravers equivalent of the "doodling" I do (much less artistically) in my notebook?

    • Simon Clode on October 6, 2015 at 11:16 pm

      This was Rash's vice whilst here and yes it is doodles!
