antique gabbeh lor boyer ahmadi tribe luristan western persia

Antique Gabbeh, Lor - Boyer Ahmadi Tribe, Luristan, Western Persia.



Item Ref



Here is a truly fabulous gabbeh made by the Boyer Ahmadi Lor tribe around the last quarter 19th century. The rug is full of symbolic representation and a delifghtful array of small stylised birds and animals. I love the little tribal woman in the centre with short legs!
Gabbehs are now rare. They were used and I suppose abused, in tribal life as everyday floor rugs and for wrapping up children during the cold winter nights, thus few have survived.
Size: 2.24m x 1.37m (7' 4" x 4' 6").
Viewing by appointment only.
