This study is centred on Rafael de Ballerna, a silversmith from Vitoria who was active in the 18th century. The finding of three important unpublished documents by this silversmith - the powers to make testament, the testament, and his inventory of pro p e rties - constitute an invaluable source to understand his life and other important silversmiths in 18th century Vitoria. The beliefs and religiousness in which he led his life, are outlined after the analysis of the texts. This study includes numerous documents related to his trade.
