Description

Here’s another item from my private collection, now ready to go to a new home. It’s a late 1800’s Ait Ouzzine wedding fibula, an intact set. The various motifs on the piece are representative of the tribe en route between Erfoud & D’raa. There’s representation of the family facial tattoo, & Dar’n Ouchen, the jackal foot for protection. It’s lucky to have this whole set intact; they often get broken up or melted down. Fibulas have been used for centuries by Moroccan women to hold their capes or cloaks for shawls in place. See the photograph from the internet. Sizes: please see photos. Weight; 292 grams. As with all my pieces, I have not fixed them, polished them or altered them in any way. The only clean it has had is a quick rinse in a soapy bath. Clean it up, if you will, but be careful not to wipe out the history. Antique Silver Ait Ouzzine Wedding Fibula Intact Set Agdz Fib1010 Wb01
