Rare Antique Ziegler carpet

Circa 1890
545 × 360 cm 17’10” x 11’9”


A rare green back ground antique Ziegler carpet, woven around 1880-1890, the large scale design is exquisite with amazing yellow, pale blues and pink natural dyes.  A warmer red border colour with a flowing border design is wonderful compliment to the overall look of this large carpet.

We can see some old restoration and preservation to this carpet, which is often to be expected being 130 years old.  We always supply a tough anti-slip underlay which adds body and stops the carpet from moving on any floor type.

Please request a home visit to view this stunning rare green antique Ziegler carpet in situ on a convenient day and time.  We are happy to travel to anywhere in the UK.

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.

. . .

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.
