G. Morazzoni, Il Mobile Veneziano del'700, Milan, 1958, Tav CCXVI illustrates a pair of Venetian blackamoors and see Tav. CCXVII.
The taste for blackamoor figures gained popularity in Venice in the 18th century and were traditionally sculpted in pairs. The lifelike pose of the present pair, they obviously formerly carried something, and the detail of their features and the superb carving of their skirts conveys the luxury and exoticism of the Venetian baroque.
