Double deck of Fournier’s gorgeous “Classic” cards, made c.1959, featuring the brilliant original designs of Paul Mathison.
Each deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers. In addition the deck with blue backs has an extra card with bridge and canasta scoring. The cards are accompanied by a paper insert that announces the deck and describes the themes of the four suits. The cards are wide, measuring 88mm x 63mm, with gold gilt at the corners; they come in the original box.
The cards are in excellent condition, with gold gilt intact – “as new” or nearly so. The box is in very good condition, reasonably clean but with shelf wear and tape on one corner of the lid where the corner is split out. The paper insert is in excellent condition, except that a portion of it has a slightly darker age patina.
