2ND QUARTER 20TH CENTURY

Persian Antique Lori rugs and carpets (which are also spelled as Luri) represent a unique and important development in the antique rug world. The Lori rugs were generally woven in or around the Zagros Mountains area of western Persia (which is the modern day country of Iran), by the by the Lurs. These Persian carpets are representative of the beautiful and tribal art of Persian carpet weaving.

The Persian Lori carpets tend to depict geometric design repertories such as animal motifs and geometric figures. Persian Lori rugs tend to depend on rich combinations of colors – above all reds, blues, greens, and yellows. These vibrant hues and shades of beautiful rich and jewel tone colors contribute to the excitement that these unique tribal compositions provide. These weaving largely consist of bags and wrappings – but Lori weavers made fairly large carpets and scatter size rugs as well.
Geometrically patterned Persian carpets, woven by nomadic tribes, are decorated with linear elements composed of vertical,
horizontal and diagonal lines, and are formed by a repetition of the same motif. The motif of a carpet can be used to determine the particular tribe, or place of origin.but
This magnificent lovely lury example is from North East Persia. called Ghouchan .

All natural dyes are paramount for the carpet to have more than just decorative value. Beyond that, various dyers had varying levels of skill and invested different lengths of time in dyeing the yarns.  The “quality of color”–its radiance and level of nuance within each color–is centrally important.  Certain rare colors such as Tyrian purple, saffron yellow, cochineal rose and greens add to the carpet’s value
