What does this mean?

Hi Todd,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

first half 20th Century
centering a circular medallion in blue and red against a foliated black elongated medallion, yellow spandrels and a light blue border, signed indistinctly at both ends, with cream selvedges.
