Beni Ourain Vintage Moroccan Carpet, Morocco, Mid-Twentieth Century – Here is a en excellent mid century Moroccan vintage carpet, woven in the height of the tribal Beni Ourain style. Characterized by the broad ivory field that is so representative of the Beni Ourain style, this beautifully composed carpet also features an intriguing array of abstract detail work, rendered in dark brown. Near the top portion of the carpet, the detail work presents itself as a series of irregularly  spaced geometric spots, some rather square, others much more eccentric. This dappling gives a depth to the entire carpet, and brightens the ivory of the field. In the lower portion of the rug, the detail work manifests itself as a subtle series of crisscrossing lines, creating the impression of a faint latticework. Complex and abstract, this vintage Moroccan Beni Ourain carpet delights with its dappled detail work.
