A rare square green antique Ziegler carpet from the famed and world renown Ziegler & Co workshop in Sultanabad, Persia dating from 1883-1890. The reason this carpet is rarer than most antique Ziegler’s is the main colour palette is this exceptional green colour! To produce green dyes was an expensive process, it required double dyeing – dying the wool blue and then yellow using saffron. A time consuming and expensive colour. The Ziegler & Co workshop produced some of the best dyes of the late 19th century and they have faded and oxidised over the years adding tremendous character.
This antique Ziegler carpet has had some restoration over the years, some preservation work to the centre and sides too. Still in very good pile all over and useable on the floor for another 100 years. Supplied with our excellent anti-slip underlay included in the price.

Further history about Ziegler carpets: 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 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.
