Color print advertisement for Styron, the trade name for Styrenic plastics historically manufactured and sold by the Dow Chemical Company for a variety of consumer applications. The advertisement features an illustration of a woman in a skirt suit kneeling next to a young girl. In the foreground is a close-up of a plastic doorknob with a child's handprint. The accompanying text emphasizes that Styron products are easy to clean and acid-resistant, noting that "[m]other's smile tells you she knows Styron's bright, smooth surfaces make her work easy."
