identification of vintage embroidery

Can anyone help me with the identification of a vintage floral embroidered silk edging? It is 2-1/4" wide by 26' long. Can you tell me anything about it ~ country of origin, age, stitching style, etc. Any help would be appreciated. (I will post a picture of it on Gallery Share photos)

The stitch looks like chain stitch, but probably done with a tambour needle. It looks like it may have been made in India?? Not sure, myself. It's hard to tell from photos, without seeing the whole piece, front and back.
