Josef Fugger - Austrian-born engraver; Griffin & Howe's in-house engraver in New York from 1927 - 1960. Studied with Rudolph Kornbrath; teacher to Winston Churchill and Robert Swartley.
Fugger's animals are more often than not full bodies, whereas, Kornbrath's are more often than not---at least as far as gold inlays are concerned---head and shoulders. If in a scene there is a hunter wearing a fedora, it is likely to be Fugger's work.
