Beautiful deck made by Brepols c.1904 called Cartes Marbrées No. 2, which translates “marble cards,” a reference to the “marble” design of the backs. The deck is packaged in its original wrapper, with the Brepols trademark. I believe that the pattern of the court cards is technically non-standard, although certainly similar to other standard and non-standard Belgian decks of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The deck is complete with 36 suited cards (never a joker). The cards are large, measuring 92mm x 59mm, with gold gilt at the corners. As noted, the cards are housed in the original wrapper; the words on the wrapper are written in French and Dutch.

The cards are in excellent condition, “as new” or very nearly so. The wrapper is very clean, but considerably damaged at the ends and elsewhere. Still, it is a terrific old wrapper.

Thanks for visiting.
