Thank you, Rich, for your enthusiastic comments! It is indeed mine, as of yesterday.
Now that you mention it, we've looked at the note again and my husband says it's definitely cloth, and it looks quite aged.
Given the comments in that note and the mention of 'Armenian characteristics', perhaps it explains why the date is a little strange. You read them as '134' but in what language?
I wonder too about the horizontal line about two thirds down of a different colour. The back doesn't appear to show that this is a repair. Is it intentional? And if so, is it where the knees go?!
The real colours are much nicer than what shows up in the pictures and is one of the very appealing things about it.
You may also have noticed how the fringe has been repaired part of the way with a diagonal stitch.
I love it and can't wait to hang it.
