Mint, sealed double deck of cards made by Carta Mundi c.1998 for the Winterthur Museum & Gardens of Winterthur, Delaware, called “Flora’s Feast: A Masque of Flowers,” featuring the art work of Walter Crane, the famous English children’s book illustrator. The cards were published by U.S. Games Systems, and the faces of some of the cards can be seen at the World Web Playing Card Museum (WWPCM#05419).

Wikipedia has this to say about Walter Crane:

“Walter Crane (Liverpool 15 August 1845 – 14 March 1915 Horsham) was an English artist and book illustrator. He is considered to be the most influential, and among the most prolific, children’s book creator of his generation[1] and, along with Randolph Caldecott and Kate Greenaway, one of the strongest contributors to the child's nursery motif that the genre of English children's illustrated literature would exhibit in its developmental stages in the latter 19th century. His work featured some of the more colourful and detailed beginnings of the child-in-the-garden motifs that would characterize many nursery rhymes and children's stories for decades to come. He was part of the Arts and Crafts movement and produced an array of paintings, illustrations, children's books, ceramic tiles and other decorative arts.”

I believe that each deck has 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus a card announcing the deck. The cards are bridge size, and, as noted, come sealed in the original box.

As noted, the cards and box are mint and sealed.

Thanks for visiting.
