Plate: Female bust and flowers

ALCORA

1764-1790

Simple but elegant plate in which a feminine bust stands out in the center, on a very schematic rockery and two simple floral bouquets that are harmoniously repeated on the wing. It belongs to the “madamita” style, such
as it is called in the documentation of the Royal Factory, and is part of the set of ornamental contributions that Alexius Feit describes as “interfinite paintings”, also following the terminology of the original documents of
manufacturing.

Plate: Sun

ALCORA

1764-1790

The change in the ornamental system that the Royal Factory underwent in 1764 at the hands of Julián López, its artistic director, contributed a series of reasons mentioned in the documentation as “entrefinas paintings”. Models that sometimes simplify their application on parts, limiting themselves to a central element and other complementary motifs on the wing. This is the case of this dish, which features a radiant sun on the solero and floral motifs derived from the “Ramito” on the wing.
