Tamboti or Spirostachys Africana is an African hardwood that I got to work with. Laid up, plained down and chamfered three separate pieces and finished with a heavy gloss lacquer. #gotwood #wood #woodworking #woods #africa #african #hardwood #gloss #fine #luxury #lush #lavish #grain #nature #custom #millwork

Here's a look at the #kimono style duster that I have finally 🙄 finished. Strut with it open or wrap the obi style belt around it for different styling. Model is typically a size 4/6 and is wearing a small/large which I think would look good on sizes up to 12/14.
These will be 1 of 1 ... Pick your own African fabric and #GetYouAPurty custom #Kimono 
Now go shop!!! www.bigandpurty.com

Yes there have been black people in America / the Americas way before Africans were forcibly shipped here.
This is how Germans saw the people of the continents of #Africa and #America in the 18th century. 
This pair of 19th century more commonly referred to as “Blackamoors” depicting Africa and America made in hard-paste porcelain (a technique developed by Germans in 1708) after a 18th century model by Johann Friedrich Eberlein (German * 1695 in Dresden; † 20. Juli 1749 in Meißen)
From 1735 Eberlein worked for the famous German Meißen Porcelain Manufactory. Together with Johann Joachim Kändler between 1737 and 1742 they created the renown Schwanenservice / Swan Service, consisting of more than 2200 individual pieces.

The pair are 6.9in / 17.5cm in height
Condition is overall good, America has a small repair at his neck. The figures have an ‘F’ inscription on the bottom.

DM me if serious interest.
