Exceptional set of the famous Dondorf Shakespeare cards, made c.1925 (per German tax stamp). The cards feature illustrations based upon paintings by John H.F. Bacon, a British genre painter and book illustrator.

The deck has 52 cards, plus 1 Joker, plus an unbacked insert card identifying the Shakespearean characters depicted. The cards are slightly large, measuring 92mm x 60mm, with gold gilt on the corners, and come in the original box.

The cards are in superb “as new” condition. The box is in excellent condition with very minor shelf wear and soiling.
