Whitney Darrow, Jr. for U.S. Koylon Foam

What is the biggest gift you ever gave Mother? The United States Rubber Company has a product for your consideration. A 1954 advertisement for U.S. Koylon Foam with artwork by Whitney Darrow, Jr. must have appeared around Mother's Day. Here it is the copy writer and not the cartoonist who is most prone to exaggeration. "You couldn't make a bigger hit with her if you gave her the Hope diamond or a strand of Oriental pearls." That's quite a mattress indeed!
