San Diego in San Diego County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Charles I.D. Looff
Like a true artist Looff was never satisfied to use set patterns for any length of time with only a variance of side ornamentation. His carvings were always changing with the times and his animals always fall into three distinct categories. His earliest animals (1876-1888) were sweet and gentle. His middle phase of carving (1889-1900) created some of the most elegant and well-carved animals in existence today. Horse heads were finely chiseled.
