The Bas-Reliefs, all handcrafted in bronze and silver, are extraordinary scale reproductions of sculptures or paintings which are ideal for celebrations or commemorative prizes.
This bas-relief by Mauro Bandinelli was awarded to the finalists of the last edition of the Chianti Literary Prize Contest.
The painting which inspired this work, by the famous artist and sculptor Giorgio Vasari ( Arezzo 1511-1574), can be found on the cieling of the Hall of the Five Hundred in Palazzo Vecchio.
The keyrings are made entirely by hand in 925 silver and leather, completely customizable to taste and need. With variegated straps, different charms and colours, they become symbols of good luck to be taken everywhere.
The most characteristic keyrings are those depicting the Arts and Crafts tiles and the crest of the Florentine Arts and Crafts Guild ( major Arts and minor Arts). One of the latest creaions is a keyring featuring the ‘Baby in Swaddling Clothes’ by Andrea della Robbia, one of ten bas-reliefs in glazed polychrome terracotta which adorn the loggia in the Hospital of the Innocents. The keyring was given by the Scientific Commitee to all participants of the 72° SIP Congress ( Italian Society of Pediatrics) held from the 16th to the 19th of November 2016 in Florence.
