When I returned the sheet with yesterday's deck in the holder, I noticed this deck. It reminded me of a sunny Saturday in Lille, France, where Miriam found this deck during the "Moules-Frites" festival. The deck was printed by La Turnhoutoise from Turnhout, Belgium, and published around 1950. Luc Biebouw describes it as "Whist", but on our file card Miriam had added "Salonkaarten" to that. I guess that this is also mentioned on the box.
There's just one puzzling thing and that's the index on the Jacks. Kn is a regular used index for jacks in Sweden and Denmark, but not in Belgium. The deck isn't seen very often here, maybe because it was made for export one of the Scandinavian countries.
