Joshegan 1854



10’ 5” x 13’ 7”         Antique Persian Joshegan rug in a red color field with corner spandrels in French blue.  This amazing antique Joshegan rug from 1920s Iran was handwoven and bears a remarkably unique all-over interconnected sub-geometric design, consisting mostly of diamond shapes and rendered in red, French blue, and dark blue. It features a stepped central lozenge medallion patterned with a cross motif and tree of life florals.  

The field and corners contain the “Weeping Willow Trees” or the  “Tree of Life” design in a repeated fashion in various colors including blue, green, red, cream, pink, and orange.  It is enclosed with a rectilinear palmette Meander border flanked with inner and outer double guard bands, and subsidiary crenelated fence border stripes. Joshegan is a town in north-central Iran southwest of Kashan. The design is an all-over ‘diamond’ pattern and the rugs are easy to identify.
