Venetian Blackamoors

4,850.00

Pair of Venetian hand carved Blackamoor candelabra/torchère sculptures. Price per set.

The blackamoor is typically male, depicted with a head covering, usually a turban, and covered in rich jewels and gold leaf. They are typically enamelled, carved from ebony or painted black to contrast with the bright colors of the embellishments. The Blackamoor is often found in sculpture, jewellery, furniture, and decorative arts.

In decorative sculpture the full body is depicted, either to hold trays as virtual servants or bronze sconces to hold candles or light fixtures. They may be incorporated into small stands, tables, or andirons. They are often portrayed in pairs. Andrea Brustolon (1662–1732) was the most important sculptor of blackamoors. Often these blackamoors are in acrobatic positions that would be impossible to hold for any extended length of time for a real person.

These pieces will be crated in a wooden crate, to arrive at your home safely.
