Luristan objects, including impressive and numerous decorative bronze horse trappings and weapons, are found mainly in western Persia. Luristan artifacts are most likely the work of the ancient Medes, an Indo-European group that eventually dominated Persia.

Formerly in the J. S. collection, Pennsylvania, acquired in 2012; previously in a European private collection.
