Object Description

A famous and beautiful antique Ziegler carpet woven in Sultanabad, Persia – dating from 1883 to 1890 woven in one of the rarest colours of green.  The deep blues and soft reds work so well with this deep sludgy green colour. A rare and decorative carpet.

The design is what makes antique Ziegler carpets from the late 19th century so desirable and collectable. Large floral palmettes all over with the exquisite colour palette, of pale blues and soft red border colour.  Full of amazing natural dyes which have faded over the last 120 plus years.

Object History

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.
