Charming deck made by Grimaud c.1993 to celebrate the famous Alsatian illustrator, Jean-Jacques Waltz, known as “Hansi.”
Waltz is described as follows by Wikipedia:
“Jean-Jacques Waltz (23 February 1873, Colmar - 10 June 1951), also known as "Oncle Hansi", or simply "Hansi" ("little John") was a French artist of Alsatian origin. He was a staunch pro-French activist, and is famous for his cute drawings, some of which contain harsh critiques of the Germans of the time. He was also a French hero of both the First and the Second World Wars.”
The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus an extra card announcing the deck. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm, and come in the original box.
The cards and box are in excellent condition, “as new” or very nearly so.
Thanks for visiting.
