Lot Essay

Ignaz Ginzkey founded his factory in Maffersdorf in 1843, and by the beginning of the 20th century it was producing handwoven carpets for prominent families and royalty in both Europe and the United States. In 1924 his son, Wilhelm Ginzkey, was commissioned by the Waldorf Astoria New York to create what was by repute the world’s largest carpet.
