Eared Dagger

Diego de Caias Spanish

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 374

This dagger may be the earliest known work by Diego de Çaias. Its form, with two "ears" at the top of the grip, is probably Moorish in origin. This was popular in Italy and Spain during the early to mid-sixteenth century.
