Bernegal. Silver. Peru, 17th century. Tembladera or catavinos made of silver in its color, handles in the shape of “ese” (or “ce” with a lower finish) with scrolls and masks, and the rest of the piece is smooth. Bernegales and tembladeras were the most common typologies in Spanish silversmithing in the 17th century (although in the 18th century they continued to be popular, especially in centers far from the main creative centers). In the case of this piece, it is the handles that could indicate 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 tembladera 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.
