Wonderful advertising deck, maker unknown, that appears to have been specially made for Louwman & Parqui b.v., the Dutch importer for Toyota and Lexus. The court cards are a modern variant of what appears to be a standard European pattern of some kind, but frankly I cannot identify which one. The Aces are pictures of Toyota models, and there is a terrific joker that I believe is original to the deck. I doubt that the deck was sold commercially, and assume it was some kind of promotion/giveaway for Louwman, and therefore somewhat rare.
The deck has 52 suited cards, plus the Joker noted, plus a backed card with bridge scoring; I assume that it once had 2 Jokers, but that 1 of them has gone missing. The cards are slightly small bridge size, measuring 87mm x 56mm, and come in the original box.
The cards are in excellent condition, “as new’ or very nearly so. The box is in excellent condition except for very minor wear at a couple of the corners; there is handwriting to the underside of the top flap.
Thanks for visiting.
