This embroidery is a mix of cotton and silk designing in blue and red, a nice clothe for a small girl. We can estimate that it was produced at the end of the XIXe century or at the early XXe.

The region of origin is very difficult to specify without a specific expertize on the subject.
But I am expecting some reactions and potential advice from the nice Blog of Eugene Baryshnikov, "Ethnography of Belarus".

I will try to share information each month on the Brocard's blog. See you soon.
