SPANISH GLASS 16th and 17th CENTURIES
Here we feature glassware made in Spain, made in the 16th and 17th centuries in many glassworks throughout the country. These were principally in Catalonia, Castile, Andalucía and the Royal Factory at La Granja De San Ildefonso. Spanish glass from these areas shows Moorish influence and later that of Venice, and to a limited extent Bohemia, but local styles were developed making it quite unique. The examples shown here are from The Metropolitan Art Museum and the Allaire Collection. In addition to the Met’s collection there is another fine collection of Spanish glass in New York City at The Hispanic Society of America.
