Mint, sealed deck of extremely charming cards made by Grimaud, c.1970, known by the name “Bretagne.” I have never seen this deck before, nor have I found it in the literature available to me, although it is shown on the World Web Playing Card Museum website. It is dated 1970 there, and I have adopted the date; I tend to think that it is a fairly rare deck. The delightful artwork is a bit reminiscent of that of Henry Favré in the Scaramouche deck made by Triboulet (this shop, #T00002924), but there is nothing on the cards themselves to indicate that he did the designs used in these cards. The courts of each suit have a similar look, but they are not identical. The final 2 pictures of this listing are of the actual deck for sale; the pictures showing the faces of the cards are from an open deck.
The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 3 Jokers, plus a bridge scoring card. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm. There is no box.
The cards are mint and sealed.
Thanks for visiting.
