Antique Ziegler rug, Persia

Circa 1890
170 x 89 cm 5’6” x 2’11”


Antique Ziegler rug in a rare small size with beautiful soft colours and in excellent condition. It is very rare to find such a small rug from the Ziegler workshop as generally they made large 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 bold all-over patterns and with softer palettes than their vibrant Persian counterparts.
