The medal measures 57mm in diameter and was struck by the Medallic Art Company of New York. The mintage is not reported.

Arturo Toscanini Portrait Relief1934
GKH-AT
Bronze with green patina

The relief plaque bears portrait of Arturo Toscanini facing left. Signed and dated over right shoulder, 19 (GH triangle monogram) 34 / © / G. K. HAMLIN

Arturo Toscanini (1867-1957) was an Italian conductor. He was one of the most acclaimed musicians of the late 19th and of the 20th century, renowned for his intensity, his perfectionism, his ear for orchestral detail and sonority, and his photographic memory. He became an American household name through his engagements at the Metropolitan Opera of New York, the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and, last but not least, the NBC Symphony Orchestra.

Karr succeeded in capturing Toscanini's focus and intensity in this portrait.

The roughly circular plaque measures 258mm (~10"). It is not reported how many relief plaques were produced.
