Early 20th century. Used as a hammock for babies & toddlers, this is an extravagantly embroidered piece from the Rjput (not Rajput) community.
Has the very very rare Huramchi stitch (that is like crochet and remains separated from the base fabric) and the Tan stitch.
LITERATURE REFERENCE : A similar cradle cloth hammock but from a different tribe may be seen on pages 207 in 'Indian Textiles' by John Gillow & Nicholas Bernard.
CONDITION : Good condition.
