Superb Murano glass figurines by Alfredo Barbini. A colleague in Venice who is a dealer in Vintage Murano Glass told me he witnessed these figurines being made at the Barbini factory in the 1950's. They are in good condition: the red coated Moor at 10" tall is in pristine condition and the white suited one at 13.5" has a repair at the rear neck area which is not so apparent. These are excellent examples of the skill and amazing prowess that the Muranese masters possess over this magical material. They were found in the basement of an estate that was being liquidated and are a rare find!
