Luri chanteh face with inscription

Probably Luri because of the coarse weave (although the warps, uncharacteristically, are cotton), this is another chanteh front that I bought because of the inscription. It measures 12" by 11.5", and according to the dealer in Spain from whom I acquired it, the writing says:'Karim Allah Muhammad Ali' (a religious invocation), and the date underneath seems to read '1914'.
