The Mughal empire in India led to the apex of Indian weaving. The emperors commissioned these fantastic rugs with a mix of Persian and classic Indian motifs, here represented by the tulips which carry with them the symbolism of Spring and Rebirth. The vibrant colors give the rug a royal bearing.
In 1883 Ziegler & Company established itself as the first to master Sultanabad rugs for the larger rooms and different color palette needs of the western world. That has continued to today, and this masterwork is a prime example of how Ziegler has perfected the melding of classical designs and master weaving to produce only the finest art for the floor.
