Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World

To me have sent a photocopy of old postcard (1903-1907 +-). On the back in the beginning of a congratulation on a name day from U.Gluhova to Maria Prsper in Russia. In the end is written - "I Send you a portrait of our known Nero. He now is seven months" it is interesting Who is this Irish red-white setter Nero? Who knows?

Fine old postcard and great story, I wish you find the owner.
Try to contact Mrs. Jadwiga Konkiel, kennel Arisland, she is very interested and involved in history of, first of all, Irish setters, but I think red and white ones too.
Pozdravljaju is Varszavy.

Thanks Anna.
From written from the postcard follows that owner Nero was U.Gluhova. I do not know where they lived at that time. They could live both in Russia and in other country. But there is no knowledge of a red-white setter of Nero in Russia.

Whether there was such dog.

It could be one of the red and whites bred by Robert de Montbron in France. He got his first red and white setter from Scotland around 1869, and bred them until he died around 1911. There were classes for red and whites at French Dog shows around this time, although they were called Setters Ecossais (because de Montbron got his first ones from Scotland)

Thanks Margaret. It could be because Russian peoples liked to live at that time in France. They could take a dog of this breeding.
