Dealer Notes
This is a seminal work with excellent plates illustrating the traditional jewelry of Morocco, and explanatory text for each plate, by a noted scholar of regional folklore. His detailed and precise drawings are highly regarded, and are cited by academics and museums, and are used as inspiration by jewelers, costumers and designers.
