The front and back panels of the three-fold leaflet feature a wraparound color drawing of a woman in a long pink dress and white apron standing on a stack of baked bread, holding a loaf of bread high in her left hand. Light rays emanate from the loaf in her hand. The back panel portion of the wraparound drawing includes a Sterling Range, coal bucket and flour barrel in front of the stack of bread loaves. Text on the front panel portion reads Light Bread Has No Equal, The New Sterling Did It, while text on the back panel portion reads Copyright 1897 By Sill Stove Works, Rochester, N.Y., Callender, McAuslaw & Troop Co., Providence, R.I., (Litho) Stecher Litho Co.
