Good afternoon, I am new to this forum and I hope I am posting in the correct place.
I am researching what I have been told is a Persian military insignia piece and so far have been unsuccessful in finding out anything about it. The main burgundy velvet panel measures approx. 10-1/2" x 5" and is surrounded by a 3/4" braided trim of burgundy and metallic gold thread. It is also decorated with additional braided burgundy and metallic gold thread "tassels" (two on each side and 23 along the bottom). I am attaching a photo.
I am hopeful somone may recognize this piece - any suggestions or information will be most welcome. Thank you!
