935. a radient antique Ait Ouaouzguite moroccan tribal rug

Antique Moroccan Ait Ouaouzguite tribal rug

935. Provenance: Ait Ouaouzguite, Atlas mountains, Morocco

Size: 101 x 82 cm

Age: circa 1920

Condition: Good. 

Notes: A simple but radiantly beautiful antique tribal bagface or small rug. At it's centre lies a charming, naive almost face-like medallion, surrounded by a serated rich indigo inner border and then a border containing highly stylized flowerheads. What makes the piece stand out is the exemplary natural dark yellow dyestuff and the equally impressive rich indigo, as well as the lustrous silky hand-spun wool. The picture doesn't do justice.
