Catalogue Note

Altura is an ancient Spanish town in the comarca of Alto Palancia, Castellón, near Valencia. This mirror was probably commissioned by one of its religious institutions, the most famous of which was the Cartuja de Vall de Crist, a monastery later abandoned and of which only ruins now remain.
