Luri carpet (16) (183)

Luri carpet from Fars province,south west Persia (Iran)

Age: circa 1880

Dimensions: 9'.9"x4'.10" (297x147 cm)

Although less finely woven than Qashqai rugs,Luri work has a boldness and directness unmatched in Fars tribal pile carpets.Two striking red medallions with central elements derived from the "turtle" element seen in so many Persian rug borders,dominate a field closely and crazily filled with a myriad of amusing designs.The striped inner border is adapted from Persian textiles while the main light blue border has a boteh pattern.The end panels are in the popular Fars chessboard design.The rug is without restoration and in good pile.There are sections of original end kilim present.
