Can you recognize the two eagles from the Tzar and the heraldic symbols with the crows, realized on this lace from the old time ? It was used in an Orthodoxe church in Russia, around the furnace bridge.

Be sure! This is not a lace! This is embroidery, peasant embroidery from North of Russia. Technique STROCHKA PO PISMU.
