Exceptional set of Dondorf's gorgeous "Club" cards, No. 109 (an Hombre deck), sometimes called Cartes du Beau Monde, made c.1930, featuring beautiful scenic Aces depicting scenes from around the world. These Aces are double ended, with a scene at each end of each Ace.
The deck is complete at 40 cards (never a Joker); an Hombre deck does not have 8s, 9s, or 10s. The cards are large, measuring 93mm x 62mm, with gold gilt at the corners. They come in the original box.
The cards are in superb condition, very lightly used, with about 85% of the gold gilt intact. The box is in excellent condition, extremely clean and without issues. Reference: Fournier, Playing Cards, Germanic Countries 178 (earlier printing).
