Mint set of beautiful souvenir cards, "Joyaux de Belgique," made by Van Genechten c. 1958. The images depict famous landmarks of Belgium, and include a few art works – photographs of paintings, sculptures, and even a detail from an ancient text.
The deck has 52 cards, plus 4 Jokers. The cards are wide, measuring 89mm x 64mm, with gold gilt at the corners. They come in the original soft plastic pouch.
The cards are mint, with the original wrapper included. The wrapper was loose and the cards were removed and photographed for this listing. The pouch is in excellent condition, almost "as new" except that the embossing is somewhat faded.
