Possibly Pennsylvania German, a hand embroidery cross stitch in turkey redwork wall hanging.  This wonderful dog stitchery is dated 1890 with the motto underneath Zum Andenken ~ in memory of.  I am sure, a tribute to a pet. 

The embroidery is on a pique fabric in a waffle weave.  1-5/8" wide crochet in white trimmed in red embellishes the edge of  the hanging.  Size is 21-1/2" wide x 31" long. 

Condition is good but not perfect.  The piece has been lovingly used and laundered so the red embroidery is somewhat faded, although still very decent.  A small break of red thread in the crochet edging (see photo).  A small amount of oxidation from storage.   My assumption this was a splash back used behind a wash stand in a bedroom.  A neat one-of-a-kind piece.
