Beautiful deck made by Drukkerij (“Printing Office”) Peter Gadellaa in a limited edition of 500 to promote the firm. It features lovely courts and double ended scenic aces that were first painted in delicate water colors and then printed in offset.
Although the deck is titled “32 Speelkarten,” there are actually 36 cards, the usual 32 cards (Ace and 7 through King, each suit), plus 4 deuces. [I do not know why the deck has these deuces, and do not know any card game that uses a 36-card deck with precisely these values. I note also that the pips on the deuces are very large, much larger than the pips on the other cards.] The cards are slightly small bridge size, measuring 87mm x 56mm. They come in the original box.
The cards are “as new.” The box has modest shelf wear and the glue remnant of what appears to once have been a price tag on the front. . Thanks for visiting.
