A couple of years back I posted a Blackamoor musician figurine which I had been searching for ever since a pair sold at auction in 2009. These never come on the market, and I was overjoyed to own one. Earlier this year I was able to purchase a second one. They were manufactured by Seguso Vetri d'Arte circa 1938. As opposed to the other, which is made of clear and red pasta glass, this one has opalescent glass, with transparent pink glass and bullicante throughout. It's a nice size measuring 11.5" tall and is part of a series of street musicians which are illustrated in "Art Glass from Murano 1910-1970", Heiremans, pg. 155. As always, thanks for looking!
