Did you know that this silver tray, from Alto Perú ca. 1720-50, was the inspiration for the Hispanic Society's 2016 Gala scarf?! The stunning tray is currently on view in Treasures of the Hispanic Society of America: Visions of the Hispanic World at the Museo Nacional del Prado, in Madrid, through September 10, 2017.
This tray was created in Alto Perú, the high plateau in the Andes Mountains that runs from Peru into Bolivia. One of the most important silverware-producing regions in the world, Upper Peru and Bolivia benefitted from the almost inexhaustible mines at Potosí in Bolivia, the source, with Mexico, of most of the world’s silver. The tray was made around 1720-1750 in an astonishing variety of techniques.
Then, around 1790, it was sent to Buenos Aires, where it was marked with a tax stamp for export. The tray was acquired by Queen Charlotte of England (Charlotte-Sophia of Mecklenberg-Strelitz, 1744-1818), who had married King George III of England in 1761. Queen Charlotte apparently had the piece gilded and used it as part of her spectacular silver service at the center of her dining table.
