For today I have chosen a deck by C.L. Wüst from Frankfurt, Germany. It's the Frankfurt pattern, as shown in the catalogue by Paul Symons and Martin Shaw, but here in a sort of luxury version and without the illustrated aces. The used lithographic printing technique is different too, so new stones had to be prepared. That's the reason for the small differences between this version and the deck from the catalogue, which is dated c1870. This deck here probably dates from around 1880. Unfortunately there's no tax stamp on the AH to confirm this.
