I bought these at an auction a couple of weeks ago (oh no, not again :angel:).
They are fantastic pieces, they draw your eyes to them as you enter the room.
They are quite big, Male H=39cm, W15cm......Female H35cm, W26cm (flare of the dress).
I have been trying to pin down the maker, but there are a lot of this style around and the only link I've found so far is "The Venetian Glass Company".
But that pair although having the same dress were smaller and not blackamoors.
I paid a fair amount (holiday fund goes for a Burton) £125 + expenses.
Probably not far from their value.
Can anyone help with attribution and are there many of the blackamoor type ?
