Lori rug handwoven in SW Iran during the second quarter of the 20th century.
This stunning rug features a vertical medallion design on a deep indigo blue field. The field is filled with smaller medallions and all sort of geometric shapes and symbols, in shades of red, yellow, ivory, and brown. The borders are a combination of floral and geometric motifs, woven in the same riotous palette of bright reds, yellows, and ivories, and browns, along with the ever present and magical indigo blue.
A real gem of a rug, that rewards the eye with each look.
In excellent condition, with no signs of wear. Pile is thick and shiny, with a heavy handle.
