Ziegler Sultanabad carpet

Ziegler Sultanabad carpet
western Persia
circa 1900
Size: 305 x 206 cm

Sultanabad was the old name for the township of Arak in central Persia.
During the second half of the 19th century carpet production expanded in catering to a burgeoning European taste for the designs and palette of rugs from this area.
A Manchester based Swiss firm, Ziegler & Co, established offices in the area and played an entrepreneurial role in the production and marketing of these very decorative carpets.
Sultanabad carpets are characterised by a lightness of palette and designs reflecting the ‘decorative’ rather than ‘tribal’ arts aesthetic.
