21” x 3.5”  (as shown, but not including ties)

Very fine silk cross-stitch hand-embroidery

Russian printed-cotton on either end of embroidery

Russian printed-cotton backing

Fair condition; minor embroidery wear; colors seem somewhat dulled; red cotton ends and ties probably added at a later date

 

This embroidery may or may not have started out as a headband. The two Turkey-red printed cottons and the printed cotton ties were definitely added at a later date than the embroidery.

The printed cotton backing is a Russian export fabric.

The triangular motifs on the embroidery represent amulets (“tumars”).
