In the first week of January I had a (duplicate) deck, advertising Purfina, on offer on eBay. The courts showed different breeds of dogs. Today's deck was probably designed by the same artist, as it's quite similar in style. However, this time the deck advertises Palmafina and the courts show farm animals, a different type in each suit: cows on spades, horses on hearts, sheep on clubs and pigs on diamonds. The Purfina and this Palmafina deck were both printed by Mesmaekers from Turnhout, Belgium. This deck dates from 1956.
