Art objects

The objects to be found in the Ennejma Ezzahra palace are remarkably diverse in terms of their origins and reflect the eclectic taste of the master of the house and of those who, after his death, occupied the palace. 
The collections  that are at presently displayed in the Ennejma Ezzahra Palace comprise:

  • Archaeological objects and artefacts dating from Antiquity such as marble columns, the marble dining room table in the great hall, capitals, ancient ceramic objects..etc.
  • Objects from the East such as Persian and Turkish tapestries, Chinese objects (tables, chairs, decorative elements) as well as Chinese porcelain.
  • A collection of Arab manuscripts, the oldest of which dates back to the twelfth century
  •  The collection of paintings ainted y the baron d’Erlanger
  • A collection of traditional silver jewellery and objects
  • A very homogeneous set of crystal and blown glass from Venice and Turkey (Becose).
  • Woodwork such as alcoves, beds and ceilings
  • Low furniture and inlaid mother-of-pearl chests
  • A collection of copper objects (decorative and utilitarian)
Approximately 2200 inventoried artefacts are to be found inside the palace. Despite their number, their piecemeal origins and the diversity of their styles, they succeed in creating a harmonious balance with the space they inhabit. Indeed, as if there existed a dialectic relation between them and the space they occupy such that the Palace could not live without them and similarly, they would loose their value were they to leave the space of Ennejma Ezzahra. .
