A beautiful and wonderfully executed true pair of Italian 18th century Venetian Blackamoors. Each Blackamoor is raised on an octagonal ebonized base with a fine tapered design, handsome paw feet, most decorative giltwood swaging floral garlands and lion heads on a faux painted Porphyry background. Each striking Blackamoor stands on an earth like base and holds up a giltwood torch supporting a candle.

They are adorned with decorative headdresses with different mounts above richly carved and detailed faces, with captivating facial expressions.
