Double Deck Fournier “European Naval Powers” Playing Cards, As. Coins Designs, c.1981
Mint, sealed double deck of Fournier's "European Naval Powers" cards; according to the Fournier catalogue, the designs are by Isabel Ibanez de Sendadiano, who designed Fournier's Far East cards, while the World Web Playing Card Museum identifies the designer as "As. Coins." The faces of the cards can be seen at the World Web Playing Card Museum (WWPCM #04485). Each suit depicts the famous historical naval figures of one of the great European naval powers of the 16th century: Spain (spades), France (hearts), England (diamonds), and Clubs (Portugal).
I believe that each deck has 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus a card stating how the naval powers are assigned between the suits. I am not sure if the cards are wide or bridge size. They are housed within the original box.
The cards and box are mint and sealed.
Reference: Fournier, Playing Cards II, Spain 942.
