A superb vintage Beni Ouarain carpet exhibiting dense weaving and soft wool quality. The carpet is hand-knotted with a background in natural ivory. Its more unusual composition shows broken lozenges, zigzags and a small cast of male and female puppets at the beginning of this woven Berber tale. The borders exhibit partial male ladder patterns adding to the tribal character of this carpet. Nicely finished with long square braided tassels on both ends. The weaver has signed her creation with a date. Medium pile and 100% wool. Feels dense and soft under foot. The carpet is in a very good condition.
