    18 x18 inches on silk with gold threaded / silk embroidery. Shows age but how old.? Could it be a "combined fragments from religious regalia? Usually, they would show at least some religious symbols in the embroidery so maybe not ? It doesn't look like a Jewish Challah cloth either.
    Seems even we old collector's still can be stumped!
