Superb Old Hand Knotted Persian Rug Joshagan Very High Quality

 The most common pattern of the rug is a diamond-shaped central medallion on a deep red field filled with geometric shaped floral motifs that can resemble snowflakes or pebbles. Four-petal flowers are often found within the medallion.

 The red background is usually accompanied by contrasting dark blue borders and corners. Stylized weeping willows can sometimes be found on those borders and corners.
Older pieces may have a navy blue or rust-colored field. Other common colors are ivory and green.
The design of the rugs produced by the weavers of Joshagan are more similar to the rugs from the Hamadan region rather than the close by city of Isfahan. The nearby village of Mehmeh uses a design very similar to the Joshagan and these are sometimes known as Mehmeh Joshagans. Mehmeh rugs usually have a much finer weave. 465R
