Fascinating Antique Ziegler Sultanabad Carpet, Rug Type / Country of Origin: Antique Persian Rugs, Circa Date: 1900s – In the 1870s, Ziegler and Co. of Manchester, England, put up some venture capital to subsidize unique one-of-a-kind commissioned pieces for export to England and France. The designs of these rugs had a distinctive style and unique colors that could be distinguished from the traditional, local Sultanabad carpets. They typically had a finer weave that allows for a more intricate design. They also used allover patterns and more delicate color combinations than local rugs.


At first, the carpet appears to be a medallion carpet, but the largest motif is off-center, and the other formal elements of a medallion carpet are not present.
