RARE GERMAN HAND MADE WOOD CARVED FIGURES SET/ 7 MORISKEN DANCERS 18K GOLD PLATE RARE SET OF 7 MORISKEN HAND CARVED DANCERS AS SHOWN.. This set is from Munich Germany, and there story is as follows: APPROX 6 TALL. In the year 1480 Erasmus Grasser, a famous German Sculptor, was given the assignment to carve some Jesters for the decoration of the City Hall in Munich, Germany.
The jesters-also called Moorish Dancers-appeared for the first time in Southern Italy, then under Spanish rule, at the court of the king of Aragon. In the following centuries, the Moorish dance became more and more popular and widespread even in the North, as a ball intermezzo. Inspired by E Grasser's figures, they have created these jesters, representing musicians, dancers, and acrobats, with a shy, sweet, lively mischievous or bad temper.The damsel posing amid the dancers, was probably the prize for the best dancer. The Moorish dancers in these pictures have been carved out of valuable wood, gold-plated and painted with great care in the workshops of the Deur Family.
