Vintage Moroccan Beni Ouarain Carpet BO68
An artistic rendering of traditional Berber symbolism, this vintage Beni Ouarain has a large scale lozenge network containing chessboards, double arrows, hatchings, and ladder motifs. The composition is divided by a central vertical band of smaller lozenges and framed by male hammer protection borders on both sides. Faded orange and violet add an unexpected bit of color to an otherwise neutral palette of ivory and dark brown. 100% wool with a time worn patina. Note some areas of faint dye transfer, which does not detract from the overall character of the piece.
