This wonderful looking large Ziegler carpet is evenly worn all over, which has created a great looking carpet with a wonderful warm, lived in look.  Still a lot of pile is present and it is a very useable carpet the wear is scattered but there are no holes or large areas of damage.  The typical blue background is covered with floral motifs, with pale blues, browns, yellows and dark greens being used for these large palmette designs.  The border is a mixture of reds, terracottas and browns using traditional persian floral designs.  The minor border uses a flowing vine pattern with yellows and metal threads such as black and brown which have corroded due to the carpets age.  A very decorative antique persian Ziegler carpet woven in Sultanabad around 1880-1890.

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 bold, all-over patterns and with softer palettes than their vibrant Persian counterparts.

Ziegler rugs developed an almost immediate following, especially among early collectors included the Guinness family, who laid them in Elveden Hall, their Suffolk estate. Ziegler carpets are one of the only types of Persian carpet which were influenced by western designs and have become one of the most sought after types of carpet.

We love to help customers and interior designers find the ideal carpet for a home. Having travelled all over the UK, Ireland and Europe since 1990 please request a home visit to see this antique Ziegler carpet at a convenient day and time and we would be happy to visit you.
This large antique Ziegler carpet is worn all over, a lot of wool pile is still present however and it is still a very useable carpet as the wear is scattered. No major damage or holes of any kind, just scattered wear but not down to the foundation. With good underlay underneath this carpet which we would supply this would last for many years.
