Mint, sealed double deck of very beautiful cards made by De La Rue c.1958, called “Lion and Unicorn,” each with the same “Historical Court Cards.” The backs of one deck show a Lion and the backs of the other deck show a Unicorn. Originally, the cards came with a paper leaflet that identified the persons depicted on the court cards. There is an open deck of the Unicorn cards for sale in this shop (T00003687), that includes the paper insert, but the paper insert is not present with this double deck set; however, I will make a copy of the leaflet to accompany this set.
Each deck has 52 suited cards, with 2 Jokers. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 57mm, with gorgeous gold gilt around, and come in the original hard plastic De La Rue box.
The cards are mint and sealed, and the box is in excellent condition.
Thanks for visiting.
