Twin decks – one light green and one tan – mint and sealed (cards, not boxes), made by Boechat Frères for Dusserre. The cards are a modern edition of a 1793 deck published by Master Gayant, the original of which is in the Bibliothèque Nationale. Kings, Queens, and Jacks have been replaced by philosophers, virtues, and soldiers. I do not have an open deck of these cards, but they can be seen at the website of the World Web Playing Card Museum (WWPCM #01797).

I believe that each deck has 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus a card announcing the deck. The cards are wide, measuring 88mm x 63mm, and come in the original boxes.

As noted, the cards are mint and sealed. The box for the tan set is clean and in excellent condition. The box for the green set is clean but there is a tear developing along one edge.

Each deck is separately available for $15.

Thanks for visiting.
