Wonderful deck of "Baraja Taurina" bullfighting cards made by Fournier c.1951, featuring designs by Martinez de Leon, with a pamphlet in Spanish, English and French describing the cards.
There are 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers. Each of the 52 cards has a different illustration, titled with the names of famous bullfighters, and the Jokers have the same illustration, different than any of the 52. All illustrations, including the backs, are signed by the artist. The cards are large poker size, measuring 95mm x 63mm, with gold gilt at the corners. They come in the original box.
The cards are "as new" with all gold gilt intact, and the pamphlet is in excellent condition, without issues, except for rust at the staple that holds it together. The box is in very good, perhaps even excellent, condition, with mild foxing/soiling to the outer box, but otherwise without issues.
