An international collaboration at DESY is currently studying the possibilities of a new type of particle accelerator: the superconducting linear collider, developed under the project name TESLA. The TESLA Test Facility is trying to establish a well-developed collider design, which will also be helpful for the design of a superconducting X-ray Free Electron Laser facility (XFEL), a project approved by the German Government and now in its initial stage. Besides, XFEL will be the ideal workbench to improve the necessary components for the next International Linear Collider (ILC). This paper is about the fabrication and testing of the first prototype of a combined superconducting magnet for focusing and steering purposes, in the framework of the Spanish contribution to the TESLA project. It consists of a quadrupole and two dipole concentric coils, one horizontal and another one, vertical. The double pancake winding technique with a ribbon of eight pre-glued wires has been used in order to develop a cheap method for the quadrupole coils in industrial scale, as the accelerator would need about 800 magnets. The coils were fully instrumented with voltage taps to study the quench propagation. The magnet has been successfully tested at DESY and the results are reported in this paper
