Mint set of cards made by Naipes de la Cigüeňa c.1991, titled “Baraja Napoleōnica,” a modern edition of cards originally made by José Leon in 1811, when Joseph Bonaparte was King of Spain. The original edition featured the drawings of J. Carrafa, They were printed in lines and then colored by hand. This deck was similarly printed in lines, and, according to an insert card, the collector/purchaser is invited to color the cards to his/her liking. This modern edition was printed in a limited edition of 200, of which this set is no. 162.

The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus 2 extra cards in Spanish introducing the deck. The 2 Jokers are standard Ciguena pelican jokers (with Napoleonic hats!), and obviously are not Carrrafa designs. The Carrafa designs are on the court cards, Aces and Fours. The cards are bridge size, measuring 90mm x 60mm, and come in the original box.

The cards are mint, and the box is “as new.”

Thanks for visiting.
