Italian Blackamoor Coffee Table Hand-Carved, circa 1940

About

A fabulous and rare pair of blackamoors supporting a later glass top. This delightful Blackamoor coffee table with two beautifully hand-carved wooden figures having ebonized bodies with gilt hair and robes. The quality of the carving is extremely fine with the carving having captured the male form perfectly and in proportion, as you can see from the images the faces are extremely well formed. The figures can be used either as a coffee table as shown or can always be used as two end tables with the addition of two round or shaped glass tops. In extremely good condition with no breaks or restoration with the gilding have a lovely original patina and color this rare pair of blackamoors can be used in either a traditional or contemporary setting.
