Fluted heliotrope goblet with turquoises

1600 - 1620. Enamel, Bloodstone, Silver gilt, Turquoise Room 079B

Goblet comprising four pieces of heliotrope, three adornments and two handles of gilded silver with appliqués of enamelled gold and turquoises. Its body, featuring an oval mouth and cruciform cross-section, is arranged in four large flutes. The goblet is finely carved, to the extent of endowing the stone with translucent qualities. The crown of the lid, the shape of which is evident from the case, is missing, lost in Paris around 1815. It was made of gilded copper, possibly later than the one described in the Versailles inventory drawn up in 1689, an enamelled bouquet.

The adornments have appliqués in opposing C-shapes, flowers and leaves enamelled in black and white with translucent turquoise drops. The handles, which are also C-shaped, feature stylised birds with a turquoise cabochon on their breasts. The design of the mount is relatively common, and bears a certain resemblance to other works in the Prado, attributed by Arbeteta to the Miseroni workshop, such as the double ewer and basin set, O24 to O27.

The state of the work in the 19th century can be seen through the photography of Juan Laurent y Minier, "Vase agate sardoine, montures d’or avec émaux et pierreries, XVIe siècle, règne de Henri II", c. 1879, Museo del Prado, HF0835/27 (L. Arbeteta, in press).
