Plaque Salus Informorum

ALCORA

1749-1764

It belongs to the series of “Lauretan Litanies”, based on the engravings of the Klauber brothers (Joseph Sebastian and Johann Baptist), published in 1750. This white enameled Rococo asymmetrical frame plaque represents the litany of Salus infirmorum (Health of the sick) as indicated by the legend at the top of the scene.
The Klauber brothers’ “Litany Lauretan” series consists of 57 engravings. It is possible that Alcora made them all as a commission for a convent or other religious establishment. Copies of the same series are preserved in the National Archaeological Museum (Madrid) and in the Hispanic Society of America (New York).

Plaque of Archangel Raphael and Tobias

Plaque: Raphael and Tobias

ALCORA

1737-1749

Ornamental plaque representing the Archangel Raphael and Tobias, who walk hand in hand. Tobias holds a fish in his left hand, and a small dog accompanies the scene. The oval plate is surrounded by relief rockeries with a figurehead at the bottom and a plumed bust at the top. Alexius Feit attributes this typology of ornamental plates to the period 1737-1749, when Jacinto Causada and José Ochando took over the artistic direction of the Royal Factory after the final departure of Joseph Olerys, the first director of the county manufacturing.
