Description
A fantastic antique Persian carpet from the Sultanabad region, in the style and quality attributed to Ziegler & Co., the Anglo-Swiss company that pioneered the late 19th century revival of carpet making in Iran, adapting traditional designs to Western taste with great success. Their carpets came to define the English country house interiors, think Downton Abbey, a classical style that endures to this day.

This carpet is a first-class example of its kind, with great design and color palette and in remarkable state of preservation. Extremely rare find.
Condition & Remarks
Good. Very well preserved, sturdy and clean.
