BENVENUTO CELLINI

celliniThis is a uniface medal in silver (51 mm). The medallist is T(homas) W(ells) INGRAM, signed below the bust of Cellini. The legend reads  BENVts CELLINI FLORENTs SCVLPr ET AVRr. I have no other details, nor can I find any reference in the literature. I have asked a range of numismatists, including the leading medal dealers in the UK, but without success. Any information would be appreciated. (For enlargment, click on the medal).
