The front of the trade card features a drawn illustration of a lighthouse and rocks located in a body of water with the sun setting in the lower right. On one of the rocks, the brand "Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey" is listed in white lettering. Above the illustration, there is a wheel that one is able to spin and it consists of all different times of the day and night. Around the top half of the wheel is the title "Duffy's Ancient Mariner's Stellar Time Piece." Located in the center of the wheel is a scientist dressed in red with a book in front of him and various lab equipment. The back of the trade card begins at the top with the brand name followed by paragraphs about the product and directions for use. On each side of the brand name, there are stamps that state "T & T." At the bottom, the publisher "The Duffy Malt Whiskey Company, Baltimore, Md." is listed.
