Superb set of Handa’s famous and popular “Luxus Salon No.99” cards, one of Handa’s “Rococo” decks. I believe that the court cards are unique to Handa. The “Luxus Salon No.99” cards were first made in1955, and this deck may date to that year. However, there is a clean U.S. tax stamp on the box that was canceled in1962, and so I have dated the set to that year.
The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers. The cards are large bridge size, measuring 92mm x 58mm and come in the original box.
The cards and box are “as new,” a beautiful set of these cards.
