antique luri tribal rug luristan western persia

Antique Luri Tribal Rug, Luristan, Western Persia.



Item Ref



This charming little rug with its lustrous shiny wool and vegetable dyes, was made by Luri nomads at the end of the nineteenth century.
Other that the two powerful central lozenges, the field is filled with a myriad of what look like stars shining in a deep indigo-blue sky. On the other hand, they may depict a field of tiny flowers inhabited by stylised peacocks - six in total - but I leave all that to your own imagination.
This is a truly tribal rug, made by a Luri girl in Luristan and she was obviously having a lot of fun knotting this gorgeous little rug.
Size: 1.58 x 1.04m (5' 2" x 3' 5").
Viewing by appointment only.
