Excellent double deck of pin-up cards, made by Arrco c.1950s, featuring designs on the backs that I believe are by artist Edward D'Ancona. D'Ancona sometimes signed his paintings "D'Amarie" and while it the signatures on these decks are difficult to make out, I believe it is "D'Amarie" and thus that these are D'Ancona cards. I have sold other decks that were known for certain to be D'Ancona designs, and they were made by Arrco.
Each deck has 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm, with gold gilt around, and come in a Marshall Field box that is original to the cards.
The cards are in excellent condition, lightly used if at all, with about 50%-75% of the gold gilt intact. The box is in very good condition, with modest shelf wear.
Thanks for visiting.
