Goblet of partially-agatised jasper

1590 - 1620. Enamel, Jasper, Gold, Silver gilt. Room 079B

Goblet comprising two pieces and two adornments of enamelled gold and gilded silver. It has a deep body with a bell-shaped profile and a round mouth. A ring-shaped adornment made of gold, with a central strip of ovolos and bands and black inlaid enamelling joins the base, which is flat and round, to the node of the very short stem. The adornment of the edging is of gilded silver with incised pointed leaves on a lined background, and it is crudely finished on the reverse. Whereas the node adornment matches the kind common in Milanese workshops, the base is possibly French, with its design of pointed leaves. The Louvre has examples of adornments with motifs incised in gilded silver, such as the heliotrope goblet MR 158 and the rock crystal goblet MR 307.

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, HF0835/18 (L. Arbeteta, in press).
