De Sevilha para Lisboa: Pratos com decoração corda-seca de final do século XV-XVI de dois contextos na Ribeira Ocidental

Rodrigo Banha da Silva, André Bargão

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The authors present a set of dishes featuring cuerda seca (dry rope) decorations, found during archaeological interventions at the Praça do Comércio (2012) and Ribeira das Naus (1995), in Lisbon. This quite rare pottery comes from Seville (Spain), where it was presumably produced between 1490 and 1550. It is directly associated with the Iberian Expansion period and is likely to have been a sign of social status. This explains its presence here and in other places in the area, close to the Royal Palace of Ribeira, wich was built during the kingdom of D. Manuel I (1469-1521)
