Stourbridge? lampwork pair - ID = Bianconi erotica

A rather strange lampwork sculpture.   What is it supposed to represent?

Hajdamach II discusses independent lampworkers in the Stourbridge area - can this be attributed to one of them?   Who was it made for?   Stevens & Williams?   Dates?

Thanks for your interest.

What is it supposed to represent - I see two people embracing but the heads leave something to be desired maybe in a stage of evolution.

If there weren't each two legs and arms would have said seahorses?  :pb:

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

I would have said not Victorian   :o or earlier Stourbridge. Modern Italy or indeed anywhere 20th C. Lampwork is/was made everywhere.

A clear image would help, it is not typical lampwork but far to unclear to assess.

Bernard:

You are doubly a very naughty boy. In defence of my posts in the other two threads, it was before midnight in Canada when I made them.

David

PS Thank goodness for naughty boys.
