Description

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.

. . .

This rare small format carpet from the famed and world renown Ziegler & Co workshop in Sultanabad, Persia, dates from the late 19th century.  The wool pile is in remarkable original condition retaining its beautiful natural colour, with the design consisting of palmette floral motifs and cloud-band designs in the main field.  An open border design on exquisite pale blue border compliments the field colour.

Ziegler & co workshop carpets have always been revered and desired by collectors and designers alike.  Ziegler rugs developed an almost immediate following in the late 19th Century, especially among early collectors which 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 carpets in the world today.
