Dear friends,

Could you help me please to identify the maker of this Spanish bird?
What period is it?

Could you recommend a web site or a book about Spanish makers?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Hello,
Made by DIONISIO GARCIA.
Dionisio Garcia Gomez. A renowned Madrid silversmith from the first half of the 20th century. After his apprenticeship to silversmith DH Adradas, he opened his own workshop and he became Royal Silversmith to the King Alfonzo Xlll. Gomez died at the age of 37 leaving the business to his wife and his sons.
