Bernegal. Silver. Peru, 17th century.
Tembladera or catavinos made of silver in its color, handles in the shape of an "ese" (or "ce" with a lower finish) with scrolls and masks, and the rest of the piece is smooth. Bernegales and Scrapie were more common typologies in seventeenth-century Spanish silverware (although in the eighteenth century they continued to be popular, especially in centers far from the main creative nuclei). In the case of this piece, it is the handles that could indicate an American manufacture, although there are similar cases that are thought to have been made in the Iberian Peninsula. Compare this piece with works such as the scrapie by Antonio Sánchez dated between 1655 and 1689 from the Convent of Madres Clarisas de Villacastín, others preserved in the National Museum of Decorative Arts in Madrid, etc. Weight: 270 gr."
