Description

A unique and exceedingly rare antique Ziegler carpet, in the hardest to find small size.  Antique carpets around 9 x 6 feet, have always been the hardest to source and purchase.  Purely because weavers and workshops favoured producing larger sizes or small rugs.  We feel this small format Ziegler could well have been commissioned to sit with a larger Ziegler in a spacious drawing room perhaps.

Condition is very good for a carpet of this age.  Some lower areas of pile is noticeable at one end, but a decent soft wool pile is apparent on 90% of this rare carpet.  Professionally washed by ourselves, it is ready to be shown in situ, and used at home, supplied with our sturdy underlay.

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

If you would like us to visit you to show you this rare small format antique Ziegler carpet in situ, please request a home visit to select a convenient day and time.  We travel nationwide, having visited clients in Scotland, Ireland, Norfolk, Dorset and London to name a few areas over the last 30 years.
