December 18


Today's deck in this second lockdown series comes from Austria. It was printed and published by Piatnik & Sons. It came to us as Bridge nr. 100A and the tax stamp on the AH dates it around 1930. But this pattern has some history. Originally printed and published by Joseph Glanz around 1880. In this edition the courts are named and it came with a set of scenic aces. Piatnik has produced this pattern since around 1900 as "Sehr Feine Orientalishe Whist" (Very Fine Oriental Whist) and the courts have lost their names and the aces are plain. The deck came with an extra card (blank back) with the maker's name on it.


The deck came single in this lovely double box.
