Rooted in Seville traditions

  • • Three brothers work in harmony
  • • Their father was their teacher and mentor
  • • Semana Santa is the focus of their activity

With passion and enthusiasm, the three Ramos Espinosa brothers continue the family goldsmithing workshop, established in 1977 by their father, who was also their mentor and master. They were practically raised in the workshop, where they spent time learning the craft after school. Nowadays, Pedro and José Manuel are the craftsmen, while Jaime looks after the business side. The workshop is deeply rooted in the Seville goldsmithing tradition, connected to the celebration of Semana Santa (Holy Week), when the city’s religious devotion reaches its climax. Their main activity is related to crafting items commissioned by the numerous brotherhoods in the city, alongside restoration and working on customised pieces, such as sculptures and trophies for bullfights, another Seville tradition.

Gold plated silver ciborium

Ciborium with an irregular hexagonal pedestal base, whose three axes each feature a detailed sculpture of a saint. The spaces between the saints are adorned with flowers. A three-sided knot with a stone at its centre makes its way up the neck to the cup, which is decorated with sacramental motifs and rhinestones. The cup houses a glass, covered by a lid with a bulbous profile, and topped with a cross.

Door knocker, brotherhood of San Bernardo, Seville

This gold plated silver door knocker was made for the passage of St Mary in the brotherhood of San Bernardo, Seville. The design is inspired by Seville's Plaza del Triunfo and its temple, erected after the Lisbon earthquake of 1755 in honour of the Virgen del Patrocinio. The knocker is inspired by the monument to the Immaculate Conception in the square.
