Superb double deck of the cards made by De La Rue on the occasion of the First International Playing Card Week, a week hosted by De La Rue to commemorate its 125th anniversary. The cards feature wonderful original designs by Jean Picart le Doux, famous for his contribution to the 20th century revival of tapestry making in France.
Each deck has 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus 1 extra card announcing the deck. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm, and come in an original plastic De La Rue box.
Both decks are in excellent condition, “as new” or very nearly so. The box has some soiling/staining to the lid, but is structurally fine.
Thanks for visiting.
