Today's deck was printed in fine chromolithography by C.L. Wüst and published as luxury deck Nr. 64 around 1890. Paul Symons describes the pattern as Mediaeval. In this set it's accompanied by scenic aces with views from the Netherlands and on the AS of the Dutch West and East Indies. The Wüst star is printed on the JC, but also stamped in red, and there's a number too. It reads as 4171. Maybe other variations exist too, but I have this pattern also with plain aces and as a Patience sized deck with Swiss scenic aces. The latter was our Deck of the Month in June 2010: see deck-month-10 and press 06.
