Coffee maker with gold

ALCORA

1798-1825

Coffee pot with decoration belonging to the style called “golden reflection”. As corresponds to the neoclassical period of the Royal Factory, the ornamentation becomes scarcer, leaving a large part of the pieces with the brilliant white of the roof. In this case, both the lid and the upper part of the container are decorated with neoclassical borders attributed to Vicente Álvaro Ferrando. Like almost all the pieces in this series, it has the A mark painted in gold on the base.

Bust: Fernando VII

ALCORA

1820-1830

Small figure representing Fernando VII with the Golden Fleece and the main decorations he held. Circular base with various lines of pearls in relief of different sizes and colors. Apparently, after a trip by the monarch to Valencia in 1814, after the end of the Napoleonic occupation, this type of representation became popular, when the king was still called “the Desired One” and before the “Ominous Decade” (1823-1833).
