16” x 3”  (as shown, but not including ties)

Very fine silk cross-stitch hand-embroidery

Russian printed-cotton backing

Good condition; no color runs; minor embroidery wear; could use a cleaning

 

This embroidery may or may not have been intended for use as a headband. But this is in “as found” condition and in this form it would have served as a headband. The printed cotton backing is a Russian export fabric.

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