Strikingly original silkscreen printed deck made by Drukkerij Thijs of the Netherlands in a limited edition of 300, of which this is no. 136, featuring the brilliant original designs of Johan Rietberg, with court cards showing regional professions in the town of Gasselternijveenschemond, and scenic Aces showing scenes from the same town. The pip cards are also an original design, with holes in large suit symbols. It appears that the deck was published to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the founding of the town.
The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 4 Jokers (the same), plus 2 extra cards, 1announcing the deck and 1 describing it. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 57mm, and come in a plastic box that is probably not original.
The cards are “as new.” The plastic box is in excellent condition.
Thanks for visiting.
