    It's a Jacquard loom weave, & the Balalaikas make me think Russian or Baltic states.

    I can't tell the age.....but it's a wonderful woven item !

    Southern Russia would be my guess.

    Take this with a grain of salt, lol, but my WAG would be 1920's. Only based upon this.....I had a very similar weaving a while back that 6rivets helped me with, only it was from a different region, and she thought 1920's for mine. Although it was from a different region, the making process was nearly identical.
    Where is 6rivets??:(

    Thank you!

    I tried to do a quick search under Russian piano shawl, but couldn't find a similar designed piece with figures. I'll dig a bit deeper later today when I get (or hopefully get) sone time.

    Yeah, where is Rivets? Haven't seen her post in a long time.
