TurkoTek Discussion Forums – Rosati and the “Aleppo Kilims”

TurkoTek Discussion Forums – Rosati and the “Aleppo Kilims”.

Posted by Louis_Dubreuil

Here are some photos from the book to post in the salon “orientalist…” at the place you want. 
These pictures are from a big fund (700000 photos !) , the collection Ferrier-Soulier, Léon et lévy, Neurdein Frères et Compagnie des Arts Photomécaniques. 
This collection has been purchased by the Roger Villet collection in 1970. Those photos cover a period between 1860 and first part of the XX°. 
Some of these pictures have been used to illustrate a book “MAURESQUES” pictures of oriental women in the colonial photography (1860/1910) by Christelle Taraud (Albin Michel ed, ISBN 2 226 140743, october 2003). 
The first picture represents a young tunisian woman lying on a sofa covered with a local rug (to be determined) 




The second picture represents a young algerian woman of the Tlemcen region lying on a sofa covered with local handwoven clothes (to be determined) 




The third picture represents a young algerian woman in the salon of her house in the Biskra region. The three sofas are covered with non local rugs (to be determined) 




The fourth picture represents a young algerian woman in her interior. On the floor we can see a coarse local rug and under the sofa what it seems to be a local matting made of palm tree leaves embroidered with wool. 




The fifth picture represents a young algerian woman on a sofa with local hand woven striped clothes. 




The sixth picture represents a group of algerian women making couscous with a hand millstone and spining wool on a big matting made of palm tree leaves and embroidered with wool.
