Antique Sultan Pin
Blackamoor Sultan Pin in silver, gold, emerald and enamel. Original box signed; A la Gerbe d´Or rue Rivoli Paris.
Venetian Blackamoor jewelry is probably the most representative example of the typical Italian skill and handicraft that takes its roots in the history of the Venice Republic (“La Serenissima”): since the 16 th century the antique moors have become symbols of venetian goldsmith tradition and still now they’re part of our culture and legacy
Name and fame deliver from the term “Moro” that was used to call the Saracen pirates that were scaring the Venetians around the coasts of Mediterranean Sea. Note please that Venice at that time held a great part of the southern coasts of the Mediterranean Sea reaching the actual Turkey.
