Diego Muñoz Spanish

Not on view

This chalice made of silver was used during the celebration of the Eucharist to serve the consecrated wine. It was produced by the Spanish silversmith Diego Muñoz, whose maker’s mark appears between the medallions on the vessel’s foot. A second mark, showing an aqueduct surmounted by a bust and the letters SECO below, belongs to the town of Segovia. According to the inscription engraved on the rim of the foot, the chalice once was "the property of the chapel of Señor Pero Lopez, son of the deceased Lord Rodrigo Lopez."
