Wonderful deck of cards made by Billy Bembo, the cigarette/trade card maker celebrating the now famous satirical prints published in Britain's celebrated Vanity Fair magazine during the years 1868-1914, including many prints by "APE" (Pellegrini) and "SPY" (Ward).
The deck has 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus 1 insert card that describes the history of the art work shown. The cards are large and wide, measuring 97mm x 67mm. They come in the original box.
The cards are in exceptional condition, "as new" or very nearly so. The box has been “pushed in” at the top flap, but without effect upon the cards.
Thanks for visiting.
