The whole front panel is outlined in a red and grey Victorian frame. The back panel contains a yellow box of Colman's British Corn-Flour against a blue background. The phrase "Colman's British Corn Flour Prepared From Rice" is written in white lettering above and below the box of Corn-Flour. There are two inside panels consisting of two different languages. The left panel contains English and the right panel contains French. Both are lined at the top with medals from various countries and lined at the bottom with the company name and manufacturing information.
