Vintage Moroccan Beni Ouarain Carpet BO83
An unusual vintage Beni Ouarain example, with a graphic pattern combining an open and filled lozenge network. Interestingly, the lozenges shift from a more densely filled structure to a more open form towards the top of the composition. An asymmetrical tree of life morphs into a vertical lozenge chain, forming a border along one selvedge. Knotted in charcoal black wool on an ivory ground. 100% wool with a lustrous patina. Minor fringe loss, which does not detract from the overall condition of the piece.
