Jug or jug. Silver. DE SAN FAURÍ, Juan (1745-1785). Spain, Madrid, towards the last third of the 18th century. With hallmarks and carving marks, and property name (Ochoa). The jug has an oval base with slight curves and a body divided into two areas (wider in its lower half, slightly concave in the upper half) with a series of curved "gajos"; the spout shows simple architectural decoration and smooth areas; the handle is of a type known as a brace, with classicist architectural elements; the lid follows the lines of the body and is finished off with a vegetal shape creating a knob. On one of the sides, towards the bottom, there is the engraved text "Ochoa", in reference to a former owner. The contrast marks place the making of the piece in Madrid. Another of those that appears could be one of those used by the silversmith Juan de San Faurí. With Felipe V, numerous French influences came to silverware, along with some Italian ones, both at the hands of craftsmen of these origins and pieces. It continues with a scarce marking in the works except in important centers such as Madrid, and civil typologies acquired great importance. As in the rest of the country, the Baroque, Rococo and Neoclassical tendencies coexisted at the Court, although, being the center that set the tone for the rest, the former soon departed, introducing the Rococo before 1740 or on that date, and Neoclassicism around 1770 (gradually imposing itself from 1780). The jug follows the most common prototype since the arrival of the Bourbons, characterized by its European influence and by the great difference it shows with the type known as "spout jug". Compare with the Francisco García cruet (inventory 03487) from the Cerralbo Museum in Madrid, with the Medina-Sidonia sample (code 59906, Catalog of Movable Heritage of Andalusia), or with samples from the National Museum of Decorative Arts, pieces preserved in Museums and Treasures of Spanish Dioceses, etc. Weight: 1050 grams.
