Description:

The front panel shows pixies projecting drawings onto a screen from a Cottolene bucket. The drawings are on a moveable wheel. They read, "Makes delicious, crisp pastry," "Is the best to fry fish in," "Is conducive to health," "Is safe for children," "Is superior to lard," and, "Dyspeptics can eat cake made with it." The back panel is white and the wheel reads, "Use Cottolene for shortening pastry, cake, rolls and bread. Use Cottolene for all frying."
