Double deck of Gibson's "High Stepper" cards, made for B.F. Dewees, a leading department store of the time specializing in women's wear.
Each deck has 52 cards, but is missing its joker. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 57mm. There is no box.
The cards are in good, perhaps very good, used condition, with some edge wear and soiling; the deck with the aqua backs has less soiling than the deck with black backs.
