Description:

The front shows an obese man in green trousers, a white vest, a white shirt, and a black bow tie with a black top hat and a rose in his lapel. He has his overcoat draped across his arm and a cane in his left hand. When the card is held up to the light, a can of Cottolene appears inside him that reads, "My meals are cooked with Cottolene." The back is black with a white reverse image of the Cottolene can.
