Moroccan Dowry Cloth, Rabat Embroidery.
Antique Moroccan dowry embroidery (Rabat, late 19th, early 20th), completely reversible, very good condition--that is in my experience exceptional, these pieces are generally fragmentary or worn when they reach the market-- measuring 40" x 56". Very rare in complete and untouched condition. This type of weaving was generally used by Moroccan Jewish families during the elaborate wedding ceremony (cf: "Jewish life in Morocco", where a similar embroidery is pictured).
