Object Description

A charming  19th century piece with a creative generously proportioned drawing, framed by a wide soft green border. The attractive soft terracotta red field complements the wide variety of natural vegetable dyed colour combinations which have nicely improved with age. Rare in this large format, a highly decorative example with a quiet formality to complement a wide variety of settings.

Object History

This attractive rug belongs to a group of carpets specifically commissioned in west Persia during the Late 19th/Early 20th century to complement European furnishing tastes. They are unique due to their grand scale drawings, quiet formality and use of soft understated colours and are often seen in grand stately homes in Europe and the UK. Antique Ziegler carpets work well in modern spaces as they have the aesthetic ability to unite and balance both classic and contemporary design elements.

Object Condition

In very good practical condition for everyday use.

This rug can be viewed in our showroom or in situ. Please contact us to arrange a viewing.
