A striking pair of Venetian polychrome blackamoor candle holders, wonderfully embellished with gilt and colourful finishes. The grand wooden forms are mirror images of each other, one of a male and one of a female, their bodies well carved and stippled for further decoration, a raise arm supporting the gilt candle sconce. The figures are raised on pedestals.
Dimensions: 59 x 20 x 15 in.
