Catavinos or scrapie. Silver. Century XVIII. No contrast marks. Container known as catavinos or trembladera with two flat closed “S” shaped handles and a line of “bites” (galled shapes) highlighted by bands of points that move to the interior of the piece. The background has a star shape (leaving some stripes smooth and in a glossy finish forming a Maltese Cross, and combining the rest of the areas in the same finish with others in polished rhombuses with dots). Bernegales and morsel shakers were frequent pieces in Spanish silversmithing in the 17th century, usually being relegated to centers of somewhat less importance in the 18th century. Compare it with pieces such as the silver bernegal from the last third of the 17th century from the Lázaro Galdiano Museum (perhaps from the Portuguese school; inventory 3916), or the one dated between 1640 and 1665 from the same museum (inventory 3910), or that of José Jiménez de Illescas (inventory 3915, dated 1715-1725) in the same institution. Weight: 83 gr.
