About the Item

Precious bronze medal designed by the master sculptor Godefroid Devreese and made by Fonson & Cie in Belgium in 1939, equal to the one acquired by the British Museum in 2003, in which we can see a portrait of Julien Bernheim on one side and read the inscription L 'innovation a ses Collaborateurs d'un quart de Siecle Madame Jeanne Hendrickx 1914-1939, on its other side, a beautiful representation of the work showing a man walking uphill, carrying a bag on his shoulder while an angel flies next to him, accompanying him on their way.
