Blackamoors are sculptures of figures of African descent, frequently created in pairs. These creations may be incorporated into small stands, torcheres, tables or candelabras with elaborate ornamentation. The ‘Moor’ section of the word refers to people of Berber and Arab descent, descendants from North Africa.

We have a large selection of blackamoors at Canonbury Antiques so please get in touch if you would like to view or buy. Blackamoors are great for interior design and add a certain classic touch. Bronze blackamoors are often in the shape of lamps or torcheres so have a practical. Venetian hand carved blackamoors are often more decorative and ornamental, perhaps with vivid hand painted designs.
