A while back, I purchased this Murano Blackamoor figurine. I had never seen anything like him and fell in love with his uniqueness and vibrant colors. He was manufactured by Artistica Soffiera Vetreria - Barovier
Seguso Ferro circa 1933-1937 -which are the only 4 years the company was in business- before becoming Seguso Vetri D' Arte. His upper torso, face and legs, although made of glass, have an almost metallic iridescence to them. I believe the red, green and blue are pasta glass but am not certain. He is in excellent condition and stands over 11"tall, weighs 2 lbs. and retains his original gold foil label. I would appreciate any additional information you can provide.
