Excellent double deck of souvenir cards published by C.T. Co., Ltd. and printed in Ireland, titled "52 Selected Views of Ireland, c.1960. The faces of all cards except the Jokers have photographs of Ireland inside oval frames. The Jokers depict clovers, and the backs depict clovers framed by an Irish harp. Fournier dates this deck to 1960, and I have done the same. Each deck is complete at 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers. The cards are bridge size, measuring 90mm x 59mm, and come in the original double box.
The cards are perfect, "as new." The box is in very good condition, without any structural problems and with sample cards intact and relatively clean, but some of the paper is worn away at the edge of the top and to one side (separately pictured).
Reference: Fournier, Playing Cards I, British Isles 475.
