    Wow! What a great reverse painted glass sign. Really nice graphics. And Bacon is the subject of the day. Everyone loves bacon. It appears to have some paint loss on the bottom right hand corner. This is a common malady with reverse painted signs. It is usually caused by exposure to moiture. I would try to have it looked at by a good restoration expert before it spreads further into the graphics. Someone once told me they repair the paint and cover the entire back with a coat of parafin to preserve it. I would leave it o the experts. I would date it around 1900.
