Gorgeous deck of skat cards by C.L. Wüst of Frankfurt, with Wüst "House Pattern 3" court cards. The box has a U.S. tax stamp that dates the cards c.1924-1929, and since Wüst went out of business in 1927, I have dated this deck c.1925. The cards are French suited.
The deck is complete at 36 cards (Ace, 6-King in all 4 suits). By removing the 6s, it can be used for skat and other 32-card games, but is suitable for 36-card games as well. The cards are large and wide, measuring 92mm x 62mm, and come in the original box.
The cards are in exceptional condition, "as new" or very nearly so. The box is in very good condition, with tape to one side and a clean tax stamp.
Thanks for visiting.
