Vintage Judaica Berber Carpet with Stars of David

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A rare and unusual Berber carpet from the Rehamna area, located in the plains near Marrakesh, distinguished by an orange background decorated uniquely by two vertical arrangements of conjoined diamond placed at the extreme sides of the field. What is quite unusual is the presence of three stars of David embellishing the center of the field, indicating that the carpet was possibly woven for a Moroccan Jewish family, maybe as a gift to a local Synagogue.
