Color print advertisement for Metalam, a film-and-foil packaging combination manufactured and sold by the Dobeckmun Company, a division of the Dow Chemical Company based in Cleveland, Ohio. The advertisement features a package of pizza tomato sauce flanked by utensils, with accompanying text detailing the packaging's pliancy and durability, as well as its moisture-proof, air-proof, and light-proof qualities.
Dobeckmun (short for Dolan, Becker and Munson, the company's the co-founders) was a leading manufacturer of cellophane bags and cigar pouches. The Dow Chemical Company acquired Dobeckmun in 1957.
