Low gadrooned chalcedony tazza

1570 - 1600. Chalcedony, Enamel, Gold Room 079B

The tazza is made up of two pieces of chalcedony and four enamelled gold mounts. It displays incised decoration with spray motifs. It originally had two gold handles in the form of dragons or winged serpents enamelled in various colours, which disappeared when the Dauphin’s Treasure was returned to Madrid in 1815 after being removed by French troops during the Peninsular War. Its case testifies to its original dimensions.

This delicate piece, with its high quality materials and exquisite workmanship, is related to various works attributed to the Miseroni workshop that are now preserved in Vienna, Munich and Paris. Its appearance is similar to a later tazza that forms part of the Dresden collections (L. Arbeteta, in press).
