A very rare natural ivory wool background antique Ziegler carpet, circa 1880 with an unusual shield design and scrolling vines. A soft reddish tone border compliments the natural wool background, along with early dyes of olive green and sandy tones. A hint of blue dye can be seen in the centre too. This Ziegler has a very early look to it, it could even be a pre-Ziegler production and be earlier around 1860-1870. Woven in Sultanabad, Persia the home of the famous carpets, the weave and pile is that of this workshop.
