Rare and Unusual Murano glass Figural paperweight of a Blackamoor in Turban. Black glass head with lattimo turban with clear green glass ornament, lattimo collar, supported by a ruffle of alternating lattimo latticino canes and pink with adventurine zanfirico ribbons. Red and gold foil label "Made in Italy Murano" covers a rough pontil. There is an area of roughness on the green glass turban ornament that is from manufacture due to a seam line or fold in the glass and a couple of small burst surface bubbles. Attributed to A.VE.M. Piece measures 3 1/2 inches (8.9 cm) tall and is 3 3/4 inches (9.5 cm) in diamter. Other than the aforementioned roughness there are no cracks, chips or repairs. Circa 1950's
