There are five attached trade cards in this collection. The front panels of each have a color illustration, including two boxes of starch with a sun, flowers, and reads in the lower right corner, "The Elkhart paper pail is the best in the world. Absolutely perfect. Try one." The other illustrations are of a debonair man at the gate, a maid with a duster, a musketeer, and a black soldier. On the back of the illustrations are promos for Excelsior Starch and Elkhart Paper Pail Co.
