FELIPA GUISASOLA

Mardrid

A Spanish lady, Felipa Guisasola, of Madrid, makes an exquisite display of gold onlay on blue steel; similar to the kind of thing I have seen in England on Court swords. It is really very charming, and it is a great pity the work is not introduced more into jewelry.

MATILDE ESPUÑES Y BAGUÉS

Madrid


An example of the work and mark of Matilde Espuñes:


Image


Image


Image


Matilde Espuñes was the granddaughter of Ramon Espuñes, who founded his business in 1840. The firm was continued by Matilde's father, Luis, from whom Matilde learned her trade.

Matilde's business ran from 1909 and following the end of the civil war became associated with the Spanish silversmiths, Meneses, and what was to become known as the Unión de Orfebres (Union of Goldsmiths).

The above pair of tongs can be dated to the period 1909 (the start of Matilde's business) and 1936 (the date of changes to the Spanish hallmarking system).

Platería Espuñes was established at Madrid by Ramón Espuñes in 1840. Following Ramón's death in 1884 the business was continued by his son, Luis.


Member Funkel supplied the following information:

The Espuñes brand, founded in 1840 Ramón Espuñes.

Its industrial vocation leads to great successes and in 1893 was appointed goldsmith to the Royal Household. In 1895 started the construction of its new factory in c / Goya. In 1883 the store changed its Prince Carretas street, 5 and in 1896 changed again to the Carrera de San Jerónimo and finally Silversmiths Street (now Mayor). In the early 1900s due to the need for electricity in their factory, factory creates its own light and not only caters to your business but also provides light to much of the Salamanca district of Madrid. His sudden death in 1909, leaves a very reliable company and happen his wife and daughters Adela and Luisa. Matilde from his first marriage is installed on your own creating M. Espuñes. The factory "Silverware Espuñes" going in different directions and finally closed at the beginning of XXI century.

La marca Espuñes, la fundó Ramón Espuñes en 1840. Tras su fallecimiento en 1884, le sucede en la dirección de la fabrica su hijo Luis Espuññes, manteniendo la producción tradicional de esta gran platería. Su vocación industrial le lleva a cosechar grandes éxitos así en 1893 es nombrado platero de la Real Casa. En 1895 inicia la construcción de su nueva fabrica en la c/ Goya. En 1883 cambia su tienda de la calle Príncipe a Carretas, 5 y en 1896 se vuelve a cambiar a la Carrera de San Jerónimo y finalmente a la calle Platerías (hoy Mayor). A principios de 1900 motivado por la necesidad de energía eléctrica en su fábrica, crea su propia fábrica de luz y no solo abastece a su empresa sino que además suministra luz a gran parte del barrio de Salamanca de Madrid. Su fallecimiento repentino en 1909, deja una empresa muy solvente y le suceden su mujer y sus hijas Adela y Luisa. Matilde fruto de su primer matrimonio se instala por su cuenta creando M. Espuñes. La fabrica "Platería Espuñes" pasa por diferentes direcciones y cierra definitivamente a comienzos del siglo XXI.
