The front of the trade card features a drawn colored illustration of a little girl barely dressed as she clutches a blue stole and hovers as she stands on one leg near a tiny fire along a river bank. At the top of the illustration, the brand "Gold Coin & Gold Medal Stoves & Ranges" is written in yellow and orange lettering. At the bottom, the manufacturer is stated in black lettering. The back of the trade card begins at the top with a black and white sketch of a stove followed by a promotion about the stove being expressly for burning soft coal.
