Entirely Hand Carved
Trademark for wood sculptures exclusively and entirely hand carved
This trademark, introduced by the Chamber of Commerce of Bolzano in 1969, is used for wood sculptures that are exclusively and entirely hand made.
Each artwork is assigned a small round plate bearing a registered symbol, together with a certificate guaranteeing that it was entirely hand carved.
Once a rough-hewn carving is ready, the trademark with the inscription "ENTIRELY HAND CARVED" is applied on the sculpture by an expert from the Chamber of Commerce of Bolzano. As soon as the artwork is finished, the expert performs a thorough assessment and then issues the final certificate.
This certificate is an official document issued by the Chamber of Commerce. It is progressively numbered and provides all the relevant details to unequivocally identify each artwork. The Chamber of Commerce of Bolzano guarantees that all wood carvings featuring this trademark and the certificate are entirely hand carved.
