antique saltbag luri nomads luristan western persia

Antique Salt-Bag, Luri Nomads, Luristan, Western Persia.



Item Ref



Archaic yet charming! This salt-bag has a naive drawing and to be honest, I've no idea what the Luri weaver was trying to depict? Nevertheless, it is truly tribal with a great appeal, soft, lustrous wool on the face and a plain-weave back in narrow horizontal bands of colour. Made circa 1880-1900.
Size: 58cm x 36cm (1' 11" x 1' 2").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM1402
