Such large embroideries were commonly used in connection with marriage either in wedding halls or as a dowry tribute in Uzbekistan. This example possibly bares the Latin date 1981 but the piece seems a little older from mid century. It has hanging tags on its left side and comes without a backing.It is unlikely this was made for trade within the Soviet era.
