Blackamoor is a figure of a young male or female black African usually from North Africa. The head or bust is most common in jewellery however occasionally the full body is portrayed. These figures were the speciality of Venetian artisans while working in the `gateway to the east` had some of the earliest opportunities to see a variety of races. The figure is inspired by the mystery the east and so it comes as no surprise that a Blackamoor figure was considered to have protective powers and therefore was worn as an amulet. In the 19th century as the Grand Tour of Europe became fashionable Blackamoor figures were intriguing and became the sought-after jewellery of the rich. In 1950`s & 1960`s there was a renewed interest in the exotic and so the Blackamoor image returned.
