About Emile Dropsy (1848-1923): he was a French engraver and medalist. At the age of thirty, Emile Dropsy finished his studies and started to make medals under the direction of Ferdinand Levillain. For a long time he devoted himself to the creation of religious medals, which were very popular with the public. 

About Lucien Coudray (1864-1932): He was a French sculptor, medalist and engraver. He took part in the Grand Prix de Rome in 1893 and won in the category “engraving of medals and fine stones” thanks to his bronze work entitled “Orpheus puts Cerberus to sleep with the sounds of his lyre”, which can be seen here. He also worked in jewellery, and is known for his numerous gold and silver medals, as well as a butterfly brooch in plique-à-jour enamel, which can be seen here.
