Rare Moroccan Hand Embroidered Tribal Chest Cover : C19th Rabat, Morocco
A very fine and rare, silk floss hand embroidered tribal chest cover from Rabat, Morocco.
Embroidered onto a fine cotton gauze with hand embroidered chain stitch detailing.
Hand knotted silk tassels/fringing at each end.
Measures: 180 x 82cm (including fringing)
In excellent condition with a historic mend and the odd tiny pinhole hear and there, nothing detrimental to the textile as a whole.
It also has an overall patina of age as is to be expected in a textile of this antiquity.
