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.

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.

The condition is fair all over,  with even wear commensurate with the age of the rug. Woven around 1880-1890 a finer antique Ziegler weave than most and very handsome, with good underlay this would be durable on the floor for many years.

We offer the service of viewing any of our antique carpets & rugs in-situ in London, Surrey, Hampshire & all over the UK by appointment.  Please request a home visit or email us for further details.
