PLAYING CARDS on ICELAND

"Rammislenzk Spil"

 

This deck was published by Haraldur Johannessen in 1941. It was probably not printed on Iceland. The deck was designed by Lovisa Matthiasdottir Bell. The deck consists of 52 cards, a joker and there should be an extra card as well. The courts have unusual Icelandic indices, but their names are given in full. My comprehension of the Icelandic language is zero, but I believe that the queen's "H˙sfreyja" can be translated as Housewife.
