Beautiful double deck of cards, titled "Gracia" ("Grace") made by Coeur (VEB Altenburg) c.1972, featuring the designs of Hannelore Heise; the decks come in an inexpensive plastic box with the Coeur insignia that is probably original. The Aces and very striking court cards are adorned with flowers – a different flower for each of the four suits. The backs depict stylized flower buds. Each deck has 52 cards, plus 3 Jokers; the cards are bridge size, measuring 90mm x 59mm,
The cards are in excellent condition, "as new" or nearly so. The plastic box is "cloudy" and has something written on the lid.
