Graphic and wonderful! The sign painter signature (E.L. Johnson) and quality composition of either vellum or hide here suggests this was a parade piece made to endure the elements. 

Age has added a glassine quality to the top and bottom edges (extending into the lettering) that both appears almost translucent and dark. Measures 24” in diameter with obvious loss, edge tear along bottom and expected wrinkles. Warm, rich patina and textures in person. Gently treated with an archival leather cleaner its back to strong, supple and ready to hang.
