Fine and rare antique Rabat embroidery, offered in overall good condition (one small area of discoloration, one very small hole). It measures approximately 30" by 37" and is, as always with this sort of embroidery, reversible. This piece appears to date from the 19th century (most of the pieces we encounter are early 20th century productions.) This type of textile from Morocco is extremely rare and collectable. They are thought to have been used during the elaborate Moroccan Jewish wedding ritual (cf. "La vie Juive au Maroc").
