Rare old advertising deck for “Mistletoe Ham and Bacon,” made c.1910, with a tag line at the bottom of each of the backs that says, “What Every Woman Knows,” beneath a picture of a woman standing over a slab of Mistletoe ham. I do not know the maker, although the World Web Playing Card Museum listing shows the United States Playing Card Co. along with a question mark.
The deck has 52 cards, including a Mistletoe Ace of Spades, but is missing its Joker. The cards are wide, measuring 88mm x 62mm. There is no box.
The cards are in no better than good condition, with some soiling and notable edge wear, but without tears, creases, or other serious issues.
Thanks for visiting.
