antique gabbeh luri tribes luristan western persia

Antique Gabbeh, Luri Tribes, Luristan, Western Persia.



Item Ref



The simplistic drawing on this gabbeh is dramatic and pleasing. The two natural-dye pink-red lozenges are surrounded by a beautiful natural sky-blue field with attractive abrash of colour throughout. Made by Luri nomads during the last quarter of the 19th century, the overall condition of pile is excellent. Nineteenth century gabbehs are now scarce, particularly as they were heavily used for everyday use in the black tents, and when worn out, were simply discarded. Today, they have become collectable in the world market, not only for their rarity but for the stunning, abstract, tribal patterning.
