The antique crown is canting and the jackdaws represent the collectors (the birds are famous for collecting items, here again they have collected crows under their wings).

The crest shows the bust of Benvenuto Cellini (November 1500 – 13 February 1571) an Italian goldsmith, sculptor, draftsman, soldier, musician, and artist.
