The saturated reds and varying pale blues on this large scale antique Ziegler carpet are simply breathtaking! Oversize floral motifs are graceful and engaging, woven with the best dyes from the late 19th century and the most coveted workshop of Ziegler & Co. A most handsome and rich palette on this carpet, the dye change in the border a particular highlight. We love this classical colour combination, crisply drawn design, and in very good condition.
Some minor low pile in places which can be seen on the high resolution image, this could be improved if requested. Supplied with our underlay this enchanting antique carpet is ideal for use in a large drawing room, dining room, bedroom or entrance hall for another 100 years.
Available to be privately viewed at home, by requesting a home visit, you can choose a convenient day and time for us to bring this carpet to you. We travel nationwide showing our carpets to private customers and interior designers, it would be a pleasure to help you.
Alternatively arrange a visit to our barn showroom, we are open Monday to Saturday by appointment.
The history of Ziegler carpets: In 1883, Ziegler and Co, of Manchester, England established a Persian carpet manufacture in Sultanabad Persia, which employed designers from major western department stores such as B. Altman & Co of New York and Liberty, to modify 16th- and 17th-century Eastern designs for the more restrained western taste. Using highly developed dying techniques, and the best artisans from the region, the Ziegler Co created rugs with beautiful, all-over patterns and with softer palettes than their vibrant Persian counterparts.
