Jug. Silver. FAXARDO, Antonio. Spain, Cádiz, 1787; highlighted in Italy (Naples). With contrast and burilar marks. Published in Encyclopedia of Spanish and American Viceregal Silver. Bibliography: Fernández, Alejando; Munoa, Rafael; Rabasco, Jorge. “Encyclopedia of Spanish and American Viceregal Silver.” Second edition, corrected and increased. Torreangulo Graphic Art, Madrid, 1985. Page 121; image 235 on page 331. Silver jug in its color that has a raised circular foot, a spherical body that narrows upwards and opens again towards the lid of the piece (which has an open spout, simple engraved decoration and a vegetal finish of branches with fruit) , and a curved handle decorated with architectural and plant elements of clear classicist inspiration. This same influence can be clearly seen in the lines of the piece. Typologically, it is situated within a common line of 18th century Neoclassical Spanish silversmithing that emerged in the capital of the Court (Madrid), a city from which it spread to other centers. Likewise, a certain Rococo souvenir is usually mentioned in some detail (the handle in the present case). The contrast marks it presents are those of the town of Cádiz, that of the silversmith Antonio Faxardo (active between 1775 and 1789), a chronological mark (1787) and that of Naples (considered as a mark). Note that the Cádiz punch, the contrast punch (illegible), the chronology punch (1786) and the silversmith Antonio Faxardo's punch appear on a chalice in the Cathedral of Santander. In the aforementioned book they identify the marks present on the piece, in addition to providing a photograph of it. Weight: 1008 grams.
