About

Pair of catavinos. Silver. XVII century. Pair of glasses or mugs for drinking wine made of silver in its color that have a small and low cylindrical foot, a flared rim towards the top and a central area curved upwards, which has been decorated with a composition based on motifs. embossed geometric patterns in stripes and around a central element. These types of cups were used on special occasions (ceremonies...), hence their material and the decoration they have, and they were very common during the reign of the Habsburgs in Spain. Although they were originally objects for civil use, it was not unusual for them to be donated or commissioned for use in churches or in liturgical settings, as well as their frequent use in important festivals (Corpus, pilgrimages, etc.). The shape of the couple is a good example of the attachment to certain previous traditions that occurred in Spanish silver during the 17th and 18th centuries, especially in certain production centers.
