Beautifully done Peacock Phulkari embroidery
Note the reversal of direction in the peacocks halfway across the textile!
Also note the presence of both, the colorful male and the smaller, less-colorful female.
While Mor and Tota motif Phulkaris are found every now and then, this one is unique on account of these two factors.
Estimated to be from the early 1900s
Punjab, Undivided India
