|2 Silk Embroidered Altar Frontals|

Hoping for help on what I believe are altar frontals.
Just general quality and age on the long group piece... I know a bit more about who they are, but not so much how old it might be.
I thought the embroidery wasn't top drawer, but someone pointed out that it's worth noting that it's exceptionally large.
The red or maroon one, I could use more input on a translation, and if it's possibly older.
Some mention was made of Tudigong:
"...words are associated with the local land deity. so what you have would be the draping in front of the alter for this household deity. no idea how old or new it is.
I will post more details, if needed.
Thanks so much!
