Double deck of the wonderful "Ciel de France" cards made by Draeger Freres and published by Miro Company, c.1950, with outstanding original designs on the court cards by Jacques Branger. Each deck has 52 cards, plus 1 Joker, and the cards are bridge size measuring 90mm by 58mm. They are in the original box, with sample cards intact; the box is a bit different, in that it has no writing of any kind on it.
The cards are in very good used condition. There is a slight crease at one corner of one of the Queens of Hearts, and there is general light/moderate wear to both decks. The court cards and Aces of both decks are shown, and the condition of these cards is representative of the condition of the cards as a whole. Altogether a fine set of these cards.
