Excellent deck of cards made by Brown & Bigelow in the 1940s, and used by various businesses to advertise, featuring an original design by the famous Gil Elvgren, generally considered with Alberto Vargas to be one of the best of the American pin-up artists. With some of these decks, the advertising was only on the card boxes; in others the advertising was also on the cards themselves. The advertising here is on both the cards and the box. The box indicates that this particular deck was made for “Laundry Products Corporation” in Brooklyn, although the deck with this design would have been used by many different companies.

The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 1 Joker. The faces of the cards are standard B&B faces. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm, and come in the original box.

The cards are excellent condition, lightly used if at all. The box has minor shelf wear, and very light soiling in places.

Thanks for visiting.
