Double deck of the delightful cards made by ASS, c.1973, featuring the original designs of the late famous German cartoonist and humorist Vicco von Bulow, aka “Loriot.” Wikipedia has this to say about Loriot:
“Bernhard-Victor Christoph-Carl von Bülow, short: Vicco von Bülow, alias Loriot . . . comedian, humorist, cartoonist, film director, actor and writer. He is best known for his cartoons, the sketches from his 1976 television series Loriot, alongside Evelyn Hamann, and his two movies, Ödipussi (1988) andPappa Ante Portas (1991).
“On the television series Unsere Besten (Our Best), Loriot was ranked the 54th best German ever. In a special comedy episode of Unsere Besten, he was ranked as the most famous German comedian ever.”
Each deck has 52 cards, plus 3 Jokers. The cards are slightly large bridge size, measuring 91mm x 60mm. They come in the original packaging, a hard plastic box inside a sleeve.
The cards are “as new.” The box has a chip out of it inside, and the sleeve has shelf wear.
There is also a single deck of these cards, without a box, for sale in this shop (T00002856).
