Delightful and somewhat rare deck made by Tai Wah, Ltd. of New Zealand for Clamcleats, Ltd., a British company that designs and manufactures cleats for holding ropes of sailboats, catamarans, etc., featuring the wonderful amusing designs of Celia Allison. The cards are subtitled, “Sailors playing cards,” and the Jokers, Aces and court cards have a sailing theme. I believe that the cards are 100% plastic, but am not certain of it.

The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus 1 frontispiece card announcing the deck. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm, and come in a hard plastic box that may be original.

The cards are in excellent condition, “as new” or very nearly so. The box is in very good condition, slightly cloudy with very light scratches on the lid and the remains of what was probably a price tag is on the back of the box.

Thanks for visiting.
