Pair of majolica blackamoors, each youthful figure dressed colorful garb gathered with a green sash, standing near a tree stump which serves as a vase, and holding an agate glazed urn with yellow handles.

These wonderful figures are unmarked. There is a mat quality to the glaze of the clothing that suggests a Portuguese manufacture. However, they might well be English, as suggested by the treatment of the pot, tree stump and base.

Continental c. Mid 19th c.
9" x 9" x 28" tall

Price: $5,500

There is extensive restoration to the female figure. She is broken in many pieces and re-glued. While she is stable, the repairs are visible. Please see the details photos or contact us for more information. The male figure is nearly perfect, with only two small chips professionally restored.
