Any help with meaning and age of this silk textile would be appreciated.

I'm no expert on these kind of silks, but the character displayed is 壽.
In native Japanese (KUN-reading): Kotobuki.
In Sino Japanese (ON-reading): Ju.
In Chinese: Shòu.
All meaning: longevity.
Looking at the people on this, I think it's Chinese.
