Vintage Moroccan Beni Ouarain Carpet BO98
This vintage Beni Ouarain exhibits a balanced female lozenge network with strong male influence present in its ladder, chessboard, and cross motifs. A central vertical band emphasizes the protection symbolism also apparent in the side borders. Knotted in a lower pile dark brown and ivory wool, lending a crisp graphic quality to the piece. Note fringe has been shortened at some point in the carpet's past. 100% wool with a lustrous patina.
