Mint deck of cards made by Brown & Bigelow in the 1940s, and used by various businesses to advertise, featuring an original design by the famous pin-up artist, Gil Elvgren. With some of these decks, the advertising was only on the card boxes; in others the advertising was also on the cards themselves. In this case the advertising is on the cards, and there is no box. The deck was made for “Brighton Motors” a Plymouth and De Soto dealer.
The deck has 52 suited card, plus 1 Joker. The cards are bridge size, with beautiful gold gilt around, measuring 89mm x 58mm. There is no box.
The cards are mint and a remnant of the cellophane remains, along with a very clean tax stamp. Again, there is no box.
Thanks for visiting.
