This textile was from either Eastern Iran or Sogdiana. Dated to the 8th-9th century C.E., it is a woven silk with the dimensions of 34cm by 44 cm. Seam visible on right of textile. Currently at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, although not currently on view.
Very similar roundel to previously posted Sogdian textiles in the post An early period Sogdiana coat.

This is a Sasanian or Sogdian panel, made of silk lampas weave. Thought to be of Iranian or Central Asia origin (Transoxiana) from the 8th century. The panel is woven out of red, blue, green and gold silk, into two roundels of winged horses, circled with a pearl border. Each roundel is 35cm across, the whole panel being 47.6 x 88.3cm. The textile was sold at Christies for £133,250 or $205,338. I am unsure if the panel comes from a coat like that seen in the post Another Sogdian coat. The size would limit the use on children’s garb as seen in the post An Early Period Sogdiana Coat. I would recommend going through to the Christies site, as there is a reasonable zoom function.
