Mint double deck of advertising cards made by United States Playing Card Company for Serta to promote its "Perfect Sleeper" mattress, depicting a beautiful woman in elegant night wear asleep in the palm of a woman's hand. Print ads with the same illustration are for sale on the internet and date c.1948, and I have dated these cards the same.
Each deck has 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm, and come in the original double deck box. The box indicates the cards were given out as a promotion by Restokraft Mattress Company of Detroit.
One deck is still in its wrapper, mint and sealed. The other deck has been removed from its wrapper, but is mint. The box is "dented" on the back side where the sample cards are; the dent has not affected the decks, but is noticeable. Otherwise, the box is clean and in excellent condition.
Thanks for visiting.
