May 8



For today's lockdown deck I've chosen a deck that has been produced by different Belgian and German manufacturers. I have 3 (Belgian) versions, with slight differences, but Paul Symons has at least 5 or 6 of them. A couple of years ago we wanted to do some research on this special pattern together, but in the end we both had other priorities at that time.
This deck here is attributed to Brepols & Dierckx from Turnhout, Belgium. It was lithographically printed around 1880 and is known as "Het Nederlandse Spel" (The Dutch Deck). 

A similar, but different deck, was our Deck of the Month in October 2015, so when you're interested….. deck-month-15 ( and press 10.
