April 20


Guess who has made a reservation for an extensive lunch with a friend, at Rust Wat in Blaricum (Netherlands) on April 28? So it looks like this second Lockdown Series is coming to an end in another week or so.
For now the daily job continues and today a rather classic design by Melchior Annen. The deck was printed in fine chromolithography and published as Whist No 36 by J. Müller & Cie from Schafhouse, Switzerland, in the 1920's. The pattern is called Rococo and for those who don't know when that period was the box mentions "18ieme Siècle" (18th century). Miriam's file card mentions that we bought a double deck on eBay in May 1999 and because we sold the second deck this one has only cost us 7,23 euro. And for that price the shiny gold corners were included.
