    Any help on this is appreciated.

    I assume that it is an advertising print for United Airlines.

    I really like the contrast of the silver airplane on the blue and black nightime background.

    The coloration on the plane and moon has a metallic shine to it and almost looks like a raised silver foil.

    The artist is Clayton Knight (US), who was a pilot and famous aircraft artist who lived from 1891- 1969.

    Thanks for looking,

    Scott

      Thanks bratjdd-- I really like it. The dark colors contrasting with the silver of the plane and moon creates a "mood" in the piece.

      The poster was done in the 1930's and is of a DC3 over San Fran. Bay. You are correct that the work was done on Foil. Nice item. Definitely a keeper!

      Forgot to say that if it hasn't been cut off there should be a legend at the bottom that says "United Airliner over San Francisco Bay".
