Antique Persian Luri 4'1"×11'0"
This antique Persian carpet is attributed to the Luri (or Lori) tribe of southwestern Persia. The Luri were originally of Turkish and Caucasian origins but moved to the mountainous southern regions of Persia several centuries ago. Their weavings display many motifs that are now common among Persian carpets and display the influences of tribe’s northern origins. This piece exhibits the often unique designs seen in tribal pieces. The all over geometric field features gul-shaped figures exclusively except for one end that incorporates diamond figures as well. It is possible this piece was started by one weaver and finished by another with a different design in mind.
