antique luri tribal rug boyer ahmad tribe luristan province southwest persia

Antique Luri Tribal Rug, Boyer Ahmad Tribe, Luristan Province, South-West Persia.



Item Ref



The deep indigo-blue ground of this handsome tribal rug is covered in a myriad of many different stylised creatures! It would keep the future owner occupied for days, even months, trying to figure out what animals and birds exist within! Made by the Boyer Ahmad Lur tribes in south-western Persia circa 1870-1880, the rug is in very good overall condition, albeit the top outer minor border has had a we-weave sometime in the past, but expertly done it can hardly be seen. The ivory border, which frames the deep-blue field, is covered in tiny 'botehs' - symbolic flame symbols from the Zoroastrians. A truly magnificent rug.
Size: 3.00m x 1.55m (
