The front panel of the three-fold leaflet features a color drawing of a woman holding a blue and white enameled roaster lid above a roasted turkey, while pointing to the company name, Lisk, on the lid. She is wearing a red and white checked dress, with a white apron over it. The only additional text on the panel is a retail stamp reading The Fair, State, Adams & Dearborn Sts., Chicago, Ill. The back panel includes text that is a continuation of promotional and explanatory text from the inside panels. The back panel also features a color drawing of a Lisk Fish Rack Or Grate. Most inside text falls under the heading Why You Should Have A Lisk Self-Basting Roaster. Two panels are dedicated to describing the various dimensions of Lisk roasters and the size of roast that each can accommodate. Two black and white drawings also appear on inside panels.
