Hi Carolyn,

We do not have a date for the trade card pictured above. My guess is that it is from the early 1900s, but I can't guarantee that's true. I also don't have any way of knowing if the age of our trade card is the same as the age of the set of needles you own. An antiques dealer might be better able to assess it for you.

Best,
