A very unusual open field antique Ziegler rug with a finer weave than normal. The border is typical of Ziegler weavings with a repeating flower and vine design, but the wonderful open steel blue field was used in the design very rarely. Some subtle changes in the pale blue background we can see as definitive lines going across the rug which often is mistaken for wear or restoration. It is actually a dye change which we use the term ‘abrash’ for. Antique Ziegler rugs and carpets are some of the most desirable carpets and rugs from the late 19th century and are beautiful coverings for the floor.
