Lovely twin decks of cards, one with red backs and one with blue, made by Piatnik, brand “151 Poker Whist,” at its plant in Budapest, c.1950, for sale in Denmark/Sweden (Ace is “E”, Jack is “Kn”), but with English words on the boxes. The designs of the court cards are the Dutch/Flemish pattern, a pattern often printed by the Belgian card makers (see, T0000308, this shop). Each deck has 52 cards, plus 3 Jokers, and the cards are bridge size (89mm x 58mm). They are housed in their original cardboard boxes.
The cards are in excellent condition, “as new” or nearly so, viewed but not used. The boxes are in very good condition, structurally sound, with only minor signs of age and wear and very minor soiling in a couple of spots.
If you would like to buy one of these decks, but not both, each is available separately for $35.
Thanks for visiting.
