1800s Japanese embroidered silk textile featuring Ohio’s state seal and coat of arms. Never restored to my knowledge. Frame is damaged and the textile has a slight rip and stain from aging. I believe this is an exported Japanese textile from the 1890s that was produced for the US Navy who occupied Japan at that time. Naval officers often requested/commissioned these pieces from Japanese artists who handcrafted them. They were then exported. The 44 stars would represent 44 US states which indicates a date around 1890.
