Beautiful vintage Beni Ouarain carpet very densely handknotted with a field in light ivory and patterned in black and charcoal. A well balanced and calm composition shows a central string of large double lined female lozenges holding intricate smaller motifs flanked by male branch motifs and black borders. Very nicely finished with a flatweave band decorated with subtle red striping and long plaited tassels. Luminous, soft wool quality and excellent weaving. Medium to slightly shaggy pile. The carpet is in very good condition.
