CU-1525-A18 - Antique Persian Mahal Rug
9ft 02in X 13ft 05in
Antique Persian Ziegler rug, circa 1900. The Ziegler Company from Manchester was one of the earliest dealers and manufacturers of carpets operating in Persia and commissioning these carpets. They were active in Persia between 1870-1920 establishing offices and a dyeing workshop. Their main influence on design was in adapting the traditional patterns for use in European houses producing highly decorative carpets using the best of materials having a lighter feel and a more vivid contrast with repeating patterns within an open design. Colors: lite brick/green/ivory/gray/gold/navy
Vacuum your rug frequently and use a vacuum which uses suction and does not have bristles. If possible, set vacuum to low power setting and vacuum the rug up and down and do not use a back-and-forth motion.
If possible, rotate the rug every few years to allow foot traffic to be spread evenly and shade the rug from direct sunlight to avoid fading in areas.
A rug pad is recommended on all surfaces to prevent slipping and stop marking if on floors with grooves or lines. Professional cleaning is recommended every two or three years.
