Provenance: Dreweatts Donnington Priory: The Contents of Finchcocks Musical Museum, 11 May 2016, lot 394


Note: While the Zuloaga family were perhaps the best known craftsmen of damascene objects in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, several other workshops were active in the era including additional ateliers in Eibar and Toledo. Notably, the period saw the creation of decorative objects inspired by the elaborate architecture of the Alhambra Palace in Granada in which architectural elements were reproduced and reinterpreted in myriad objects.
