Medallion of the X Count of Aranda

ALCORA

From 1790

El retrato del X Conde de Aranda se presenta con D. Pedro Pablo de perfil, de medio cuerpo, con las manos metidas en la parte frontal del chaleco y con una panoplia de trofeos de guerra en la parte inferior. Es similar al conservado en The Hispanic Society of America de Nueva York, si bien cambia el tono azulado al estilo Wedgwood de este último, y la orla perimetral, que en el caso del ejemplar de la colección Torrecid está formada por un motivo de laurel policromo (verde y rojo).

Plate: Female bust and flowers

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.

Plate: Orange tree

ALCORA

1775-1790

Popularly known as “Chaparro” because of the type of tree that appears in first, this ornamental style is called in the documentation as “source tree little countries”. The central motif hardly shows any variations in the large number of known pieces: a tower from which water flows as fountain, a tree with twisted trunk, green leaves and orange fruits. In the reverse side features number 8 painted in manganese, probably production control.

Decoration described in the documentation of the time as “trophies”, also called “à la fanfare”.

Cruets

ALCORA

1775-1790

Decorated with the characteristic motif of the Cacharrero style, with fruits, flowers and leaves that acquire volume thanks to the use of bichrome. In this case, the most notable is the shape of the cruets, with neck and pour spout very stylized, rockery handles and faceted body. The geminated base is openwork and has a short neck that acts as a handle.
