Pedro Ignacio Ramos(early 18th century - Caracas - 1781)
Globular body with double curvature, gadrooned decoration, supported on a short, molded oval-based. The spout is short and curved. It is prolonged towards the center of the body and culminates in a half knob on the baluster. This is globular contour with very pronounced gadroons.
Pedro Ignacio Ramos is considered the most important silversmith in Venezuela during the second half of the 18th century. Just like several examples of his religious silver, the pieces of silverware made by this famous silversmith that have survived are few and far between: to date, two are known. The remarkable execution and nobility of this jar, derived from Hispanic models of the period, is an example of the high quality of the work of this Venezuelan virtuoso silversmith and goldsmith.
