Antique Indian Embroideries

On Saturday I was so excited to buy these two pieces of embroidery at the local auction house.
They came from a country house sale and I would love to find out more about them.

The frames and mounts are decidedly grubby but the frames will clean up well and I’m going to remount the embroidery and hang them in our Indian/Boho/Hippy sitting room. 

The needlework is very fine and they look as if they were made as panels.
If anyone can help with a date or geographical area I’d be very interested to know.

These are beautiful and the execution is very fine compared with similar more modern embroideries. I've no idea of region but I'd make an educated guess that they have some age to them - at least 50 years.
