982. an enriching old Ait Ouaouzguite Moroccan Berber rug

Old Antique Ait Ouaouzguite Moroccan Berber rug

982. Provenance: Ait Ouaouzguite (High Atlas), Tazernahkt, Morocco

Age: circa 1950

Size: 195 x 130 cm

Condition: Good with just minor lower pile in places.

Notes: A rich warm red main field, surrounding a cream white central medallion. The generous use of saffron yellow (a Berber speciality) adds to the sunny warmth of the piece. The cream-based floral main border compliments the more angular tribal motifs in the main field beautifully. Gutsy natural indigo adds impact. Lovely soft highland hand spun wool. A beauty.
