Rectangular cardboard sign featuring black and white text against an orange background. At the top left is a black text on a white field that reads "AUTHORIZED / AGENT." To the bottom right of the box is a decorative white swirl. The rest of the sign is filled with black text outlined in white. It reads "Mme. C. J. Walker's / SYSTEM / AND / PREPARATIONS". There is a heavy black underline under the name Walker. A black line forms a border around the outer edges of the sign. A black cord is strung through two holes at the top center. The sign is currently housed in a dark wooden frame with white mat board and glass front. On the back of the frame is a museum label from a previous exhibit.
