A beautiful pale antique Ziegler carpet from the famed and world renown Ziegler & Co workshop in Sultanabad, Persia dating from 1883-1890. Woven in the late 19th century with exceptional natural dyes which have faded wonderfully over the last 100 plus years. We can see clear changes in colour as we look down the carpet, which is called dye change known as abrash. This is not sun fading or damage to the carpet it is rather like beautiful patina on antique furniture. Abrash/dye change adds immense character to these large antique carpets from Sultanabad, woven with soft wool this carpet has a delicate and decorative look. The muted green border is a rarer colour in Ziegler carpets and combined with the gentle pink, apricot tones makes this such a wonderful piece.
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.
