This vintage deck of playing cards is advertising Independence Safety Matches which were apparently made by America’s Own Match Co. of New York. Two opposing corners of the cards are cut on an angle which consequently gives the illusion that each card is a three dimensional match box. The deck of linen finish cards is complete including one joker and an Auction Bridge / Contract Bridge point card, all in its original box. I believe they were probably from the 1930’s or early 40’s.
The cards are in good but used condition with light wear and soiling. The box is in fair condition with edge wear, small tears and a taped edge.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
