Very good twin decks of the patience size version of Dondorf’s famous “Baronesse” pattern. The tax stamp on each Ace of Hearts appears to me clearly to be the “old eagle” which dates the cards to the 1880s. Each is available separately for $20; both are for sale for $35.
Each deck has 52 suited cards. They are standard patience size cards, measuring 65mm x 43mm, and each deck is in its original box.
The cards are in what seems to me to be very good used condition. There is some light soiling in places and a moderate amount of edge wear throughout; 2 or 3 cards have slight tears or creases. The boxes are in very good condition, surprisingly clean and structurally sound, with general shelf wear.
