These clay bell beakers come from the Early Bronze Age necropolis of Ciempozuelos (Cuesta de la Reina, Madrid), Spain and they were found during excavations conducted in the late 19th century CE. (Ciempozuelos was the first Bell-Beaker necropolis ever discovered in Spain.) As was customary at the time, the finds were divided among various institutions and collectors. The beakers shown here came from the collections of Antonio Vives and the Marquis of Cerralbo. (Museo Arqueológico Nacional, Madrid)
