Hi, I was wondering if anyone could possibly help me.
My partner has recently aquired these pieces and We have absolutely no ideas as what they are!

Hi Lesley,

To save the experts here from saying the obvious, the first (blue) item is clearly from India with its image of the Taj Mahal. I don't think is too wild to speculate that it was made purely as a souvenir for tourists, just the thing to take home to "mother".

The second (yellow) item is Chinese. A detail of the piece could show what the technique is (Jacquard brocade?). Since it seems unlikely that the piece is old, I will speculate wildly that its design is influenced by - or a copy of - an earlier textile with the "100 boys" subject.
Here is an example:

You can pass your cursor over the image for larger excerpts.

Regards, Larry

Thanks for answering!
I assumed that was what the first was.
I'll have to do more looking about the others!
