These embroidered small covers have a number of uses, from covering the brides dowry to covering the TV screen. This example shows doves and flowers, and is inscribed "August 25, Persian Peace". Could this be a commemoration of the end of the Iran-Iraq war? Perhaps a comment on the coup which put the Pahlavis in power? Both events occurred in mid August.
