A fine pair of 19th century blackamoors figures of unusual form, the nobly executed figures baring baskets of fish, standing on original triform elaborately carved bases.
One of the finest examples of a blackamoor in the arts is the Mohr mit Smaragdstufe ("Moor with Emerald Cluster"), in the collection of the Grünes Gewölbe in Dresden, Germany. It was created by Balthasar Permoser in 1724. The statue is richly decorated with jewels and is 63.8 cm (2.09 ft) high.
