Hi,

Shoot.
This looks Moroccan as well.
The green does it.
Could be natural. Looking again. If you didn't mess with the colours, it must be natural.
The black and white combination.
Kilim? Very pliable?

Best regards,
Vincent

Hi Richard,

It's a pity this isn't a kilim.
The older, simple, Moroccan kilims can be very beautiful and primitive.
But ok. This looks like a Quizquit as well.
But this one has a nice extra ending.
It's a rug. Size 220x150cm?

Maybe this one's a bit older?
Because the other one seems more oriental style.
This one seems more Moroccan.

Best regards,
Vincent

Hi,

If not a rug.........A prayer rug?
In Turkish style?

Best regards,
Vincent

CONGRADULATIONS TO VINCENT


you have got it . . . it is a high atlas rug . . . i will measure it later . . . the ending with the green IS A CLUE FOR ANOTHER PUZZLE

i think it is second quarter twentieth century because of where i found it and when the people immagrated here from morrocco . . . . there are experts out there on maghreb rubs who might want to pitch in.


in the meantime
all honor to vincent

High Atlas, mixed technique, early 20th century?

Something like this, which is said to be a saddle bag:



But Richardís looks more like a rug.
