Ca. 1980/1990, in wood, leather, velvet, golden thread, with trimmings, Morocco, in excellent condition,

Typical Moroccan handmade horse saddle, defined by some craftsmen as Royal (Royal Saddle Horse Moroccan style)

Wooden seat with geometric decorations with a double cover, the first in contact with the saddle, with a rich embroidery in gold thread on the sides, the second in contact with the rider, mainly in leather and shows a simple decoration in white on the edges and the centre.
Saddle size: Ca. 66 cm in length, 52 cm in width, 46 cm in height.

The cover, about 1 x 1 mt, is composed of a gold thread embroidery on velvet, mounted on leather, with part of the edge refined with trimmings and tassels with golden decorations.

The other refinements ( the brackets are lost) reflect the same pattern with gold embroidery on red velvet and trimmings interwoven with gold thread.

The embroidery scheme, composed of arabesques,is elegant but not too heavy and is typical of Arab-Andalusian art.
