This attractive rug belongs to a group of carpets specifically commissioned in west Persia during the Late 19th/Early 20th century to complement European furnishing tastes. They are unique due to their grand scale drawings, quiet formality and use of soft understated colours and are often seen in grand stately homes in Europe and the UK. Antique Ziegler carpets work well in modern spaces as they have the aesthetic ability to unite and balance both classic and contemporary design elements.

An exceptional early Ziegler Sultanabad carpet with a clear, crisp drawing due to its very fine weave. The creative well-balanced overall pattern in the central field has designs cleverly repeated in a different shapes and colour combinations, framed beautifully by a unique light-blue border. The colours are all natural vegetable dyed which have aged nicely.

An elegant example with a quiet formality that would blend in a wide variety of spaces, rare in this large format.
