More about the provenance Ziegler Tribute™ | Afghanistan
This is a "Ziegler" rug of new manufacture. In 1883 a Swiss man by the name of Ziegler founded an import company in Manchester, England and at the same time a rug manufactory in Sultanabad (today: Arak), Iran. In this manufactory they produced rugs of high quality in beautiful tone in tone pastel colors and allover designs inspired by Mahal and Farahan designs which were made mainly for the European taste. The success and the demand were huge and "Ziegler" became an international trademark and a guarantee for beautiful high quality rugs. Antique Ziegler rugs today reach record breaking auction prices especially in the USA. Since a number of years these antique Ziegler designs are being reproduced in Iran, Pakistan and Egypt with various grades of quality. In this case the rug is of very high and durable quality made in Afghanistan and we offer it with pleasure.
