Tabletop of the Admiral of Castile

Ca. 1625. Agate, Chalcedony, Coral, Bohemian jasper, Lapis lazuli, White marble, Paragone Room 040

This tabletop has a border with large, lapis lazuli cartouches surrounding the arms of the 9th Admiral of Castile, Alfonso Enríquez de Cabrera, and of his mother, Vittoria Colonna. Enríquez de Cabrera was Viceroy of Naples between 1644 and 1646, when he must have acquired this tabletop. The coat-of-arms is less delicately executed than the border. The base dates from the nineteenth century.
