Vintage Moroccan Marmoucha Carpet MA04
This antique Marmoucha carpet exhibits an intricate and ornate pattern throughout. The lozenge network is created with chains of cross hatched forms, filled with both symmetrical and abstract variations of the hamsa pattern. A band of open unfilled lozenges lends a moment of pause to the composition. Narrow male side protection borders frame the piece. The very low pile displays wear and some loss, adding to the overall character of the carpet. Knotted in charcoal, dark brown and dark ivory, with a few knots of purple and red formed as a signature by the weaver. 100% wool.
