Text in part: "It removes fat from that part of the body to which it is applied--restoring the natural bloom of youth, leaving no wrinkles or flabbiness....You merely apply the ointment to the part you wish reduced....We guarantee results....We will send you our book on obesity, which gives cases and facts of the new discovery--a cure by absorption....Confidential." A full-figured woman in Victorian dress appears rather glum. 17" x 11" Very Good. Item #040552
