Some of the most beautiful work of this craftsman, and many others, are in this book “Liège Gunmakers through their Work. 1800 - 1950”.

DOZIN, Mathieu was a "Arms manufacturer", Rue de Visé, n°100 to Wandre, Belgium, which deposited the British patent 23739/1902 with the aid of the patent agents of London, Messrs. Boult, Wade and Kilburn. Wandre is a small Belgian city, with approximately ten kilometers of Liege, a city with an economy on which (at least partly) manufacture depended on weapons since the sixteenth century.
One is unaware of if Mr. Dozin continued to manufacture in Wandre, or if the address were its private residence.
The specifications of patent 23739/1902 aimed five innovations for two basically similar systems of ejection of cartouche employed in the revolvers. With the difference of the mechanism of CASHMORE, ELLIS and of WILKINSON, the diagrams of the specifications of Dozin showed its invention applied to the small articulation of the revolvers of nonapparent trigger pocket (with folding trigger). A useful improvement in the design of Dozin was that the too strong ejection could be decreased at will. The user could thus gently expel the cartridges in his hand, by ejecting the empty casings completely their rooms.
DOZIN deposited 8 patents in Belgium of 1897 to 1906 concerning various improvements with the revolvers.
