A very rare antique Ziegler carpet from the famed and world renown Ziegler & Co workshop in Sultanabad, Persia dating from 1883-1890. The reason this carpet is rarer than most antique Ziegler’s is the design is a copy of a 17th Century Polonaise carpet. In over 25 years of working with antique carpets we have never come across one with this design before! We have struggled to find any other examples upon doing further research also. The colours are unbelievable with the pale blue/greys, warm reds, mustard yellows and ivory and blues. The Ziegler & Co workshop produced some of the best dyes of the late 19th century and they have faded and oxidised over the years adding tremendous character. The Metropolitan Museum in New York exhibits rare 17th Century Polonaise carpets, it has a Polonaise carpet with the same design as our Ziegler we are offering here.
