Here is a comparison between the Black Palekh 1937 and 1967 court cards - King of Spades. The original is much finer detailed work since Pashkov simplified the art to make it work for the 1967 offset printing. The border added to the 1967 version also made the figure smaller.

Vladaslav Erko "Korchma Taras Bulba" first printing from 2005. The 2011 printing has Anglicized indices, different back & tuck and gold metallic inks, prettier overall, I suppose - but this one is harder to find.

It's obviously a contemporary deck, but you should expect to pay $45-$65 in mint / unopened condition. It's a Ukrainian artist with Ukrainian court illustrations, but the "Taras Bulba" is a Ukrainian restaurant in Moscow, so it actually belongs here. The other two suits are posted in the "J R #46" (New Era restoration) thread.

Anti-Fascist
Originally c. 1942/43
This facsimile 2010


This deck is a facsimile of a Russian deck designed by artist Vasiliy Andrianovich Vlasov. The publisher of this printing of the deck is the "Peterhof Museum of Playing Cards". It was printed from a deck in their collection by “Diton”, in 2010 as a limited edition of 500 decks. There are small differences in color between the cards suggesting the pip and information cards were printed separately from the more colourful courts and aces.

Anti-Fascist spades small.jpg


These cards have a connection to the the Siege of Leningrad which went from 1941 - 1944. Towards the end of 1941 Stalin gave orders that playing card production was to be resumed at "The Colour Printing Plant" in Leningrad. A pack of ‘anti-fascist’ playing cards was designed by the artist V. A. Vlasov.

Anti-Fascist hearts small.jpg


There was only a handful of map specialists present in the beseiged city to make the cards. Hungry, working under difficult conditions and with no electricity, the pack was eventually finished as an edition of about 700 copies. Dates I was able to find online differ and only list the year as either 1942 or 1943. Considering the difficulty in it's manufacture I lean towards 1943.

Anti-Fascist clubs small.jpg


The cards were apparently loaded into an aircraft and thrown, with leaflets, in the vicinity of enemy units as a gesture of defiance.

Anti-Fascist diamonds small.jpg


The characters portrayed are from the countries that had attacked Russia in 1941: Germany, Romania, Italy and Finland. The Queens and Aces are allegories of the times and the Joker shows Goebbels.

The deck was also apparently redrawn from old photographs by the artist Elena Petrova in 2003. It was published as a reproduction at that time by an A. Lutovskiy.

"Palekh" designed by Alexsey Orleansk.
Originally produced by the colour printing plant in st Petersberg in 1995. Alexsey was never happy with the plants printing of his cards and reprinted and produced them himself from 2001 onwards,this pack is one of his printings from 2016.
IMG_0001.jpg

translated from the information card
In 1937 the first Palekh deck was made by originals of a talented palekh painter Pavel Bazhenov, that pack was so good that the masters of Palekh didn`t work in this trend for a long time. After Bazhenov`s pack the creation of originals for cards by Alexsey Orleansky is the second attempt to make them in Palekh style.
IMG_0002.jpg

The Orleansky`s pack of cards consists of not only fourteen card figures: Kings, Queens, Knaves of every stripe and two jokers. Aspiring to create the pack as a single whole the painter designed a title ccard, a back, a vignette for the aces and painted figures and letters. His court figures reflect the epoch of Russian Tsar Aleksey Mikhailovitch. The costumes of the characters can be traced back to the time before the reign of Peter the first. Alexsey Orleansky appeals in his playing cards to Russian history because of its connection with the tradition of card pictures and the nature of Palekh painting also fits the epoch of Tsar Alexsey Mikhailovitch.
IMG_0003.jpg


"Seasons" designed by U.P Ivanov. This pack is dated 2002.
Originally titled "Seasons" or "Times of the year" and first published by the colour printing plant in st Petersburg in 1971, Each suit is allegorical of one of the four seasons of Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn.
00.jpg

The graphic design is clear, decorative and geometrical, with straightforward symmetry and colour co-ordination in each suit.The attributes of the court figures add a touch of the theatrical and enhance the symbolism of the seasons,giving a sense of drama and overall integration to the design.

Jase, I really like the "Eastern" deck. I also looked up the Buryat-Mongolian deck and I think I like that one even better. I will definitely keep my eyes open for either of these decks- at a price I can afford, of course. It reminds me of how disappointed I was when the Mongol Empire deck on KS didn't fund.

On another note, do you ever get the chance to add some of your decks to the P52 database? Your vast collection would be an incredible contribution and honestly, I don't think P52 could ever be considered complete with out it.

Thanks for showing us your cards.

Hiya flashcards :D ..yes i think the AR killed that project from the start.
i didn`t pledge because i didn`t want to pay for a feature that i couldn`t see or feel everytime i took the pack out.i`d have used it once and then promptly forgot about the feature :lol:
should have started with a normal deck of cards and had the AR as a stretch goal...oh well :roll:

I understand that this may sound selfish but,i have my own way to catalogue and keep track of my collection and have no real reason to join P52....Sorry, however,i think P52 will continue to grow and flourish without me.

This 36 card pack is a reprint of a 52 card deck titled "M.O. Mikeshin (The Sketch of Cards)"that was printed in 2012 by IAE of Russia for E. Grigorenko.
The famous Russian artist Mikhail Osipovich Mikeshin produced these sketches of cards for an all Russian printing exhibition in St Petersburg in 1890, and although the pack had great reviews the deck was never printed until 2012.

RUSSIAN PLAYING CARDS c.1798, printed by "MAK". dated 2011
IMG_0004.jpg

This 52 card deck produced by Evgeny Grigorenko is a reproduction of one of the earliest packs printed in Russia.
There is no Tax stamp bearing the Imperial Eagle on the Ace of Diamonds which suggests the pack dates from before the Empress Maria Fiodorovna established the state run playing card monopoly. The court cards are modeled on European playing cards which were imported into Russia during the 17th century.

"LUBOCHNYE" designed by V.M. Sveshnikov and printed by The Colour Printing Plant, St Pettersburg in 1985.
A 36 card pack with each card measuring 80mm X 50mm.
In 1981 V.M. Sveshnikoz made sketches for a new pack of cards called Lubochnye. The name of the pack of cards itself tells us that they were based on the Russian popular prints. The special appeal of these cards is that they seem to have come straight from the pages of books on Russian fairy tales. However we can`t say that the illustrations are abundant in symbols of the Russian mythology, these are rather Byzantium archetypal images. Through the stylistics of the images themselves and a mythological bird Sirin on the backs plunge players into the atmosphere of Russian folklore.
IMG_0001.jpg

All the face cards of this pack are preoccupied with something, only the Kings do nothing because their status presupposes them to do so. They are just idly sitting on the throne. Meanwhile, the Queens have got only one minute to turn their heads and throw a glance at the player. They haven`t got any spare moment because the queen of hearts is carrying a yoke full of watter, the queen of diamonds is making a wreath, the queen of clubs is bustling around the kitchen making Pancakes and the queen of spades has been spinning tows for a long time.
IMG_0002.jpg

As befits courageous card warriors represented by the jacks, they are occupied with military affairs. They are all on horseback galloping at speed, each carrying a weapon at the ready.It seems the picture is about to start moving and the jacks of hearts and diamonds will stab each other with their spears.
IMG_0003.jpg

The pip cards of the pack all have everyday and fairy tale illustrations in the background. The ten of hearts shows a hunting winged centaur pulling the bow string and ready to shoot. The ten of diamonds shows a turtledove flying above a tent, the ten of clubs pictures a mythological bird Sirin fluttering its wings and the ten of spades shows us a kitten playing with a clew.
IMG_0004.jpg

The Lubochnye pack of cards is one of four packs that V.M. Sveshnikov designed for the colour printing factory. The factory did print a very limited edition of this deck with 52 cards and 2 jokers.
