Nice Cir-Q-Lar! That looks like an earlier deck than my clockwork back ones.
Do you know a date on it Jase? Great that you found decks from the cooperation of De La Rue and Waddingtons. That must have been a good friendship as the association lasted so long. Hard to imagine that happening now.

I always love seeing those A Todos Alumbra, and the simple and delicate, but solid, design of the boxes. The colours are gorgeous too. Partly age and partly how inks used to be.

Interesting treatment of the European 4 indices on the Sima-Land, and I like the back.

More, more! :ugdance:

Hi there Dazzelguts :D i remember you asking about the dates for cir-q-lar decks before, these are from the first printing from the 1930`s which ended at the beginning of WWII due to paper shortages, any cir-q-lar cards with the sit down joker or "All British make" on the ace of spades are from the first printings. Any cir-q-lar cards with the stand up jokers are from the 1950`s onwards ,i`m not sure when they finished printing these ,but they are in the 80`s cataloques,so i presume they kept printing them until the Hasbro takeover in the 90`s.

The two men (who were poles apart socially) first met in the early 1930`s when Bernard Westall decided to met both Alf Cooke and Victor Watson about Price Fixing. He met with Alf Cooke first then Victor Watson, In that meeting they agreed that price fixing would eventually destroy the competitive edge of both businesses and make them vunerable to attack from others. Instead they instituted an Annual Cricket match and other sports days so that employees from both companies would get to know one another and compete fairly with each other.
As you say i doubt that would happen nowadays.

Yeah i love`em , The cards came in paper wrappers, which are a little delicate, i`ve only removed the cards twice for fear of the wrappers falling apart. :lol: :lol:

Jase,

I've been very intrigued by the many beautiful Russian decks you have posted and wanted to get one for myself. I'd been looking at some on Ebay but they all cost a bit more than I was willing to pay. Last week I was in our local Goodwill second hand shop and I came across a Russian deck opened but in perfect condition! The cost; one dollar. I was beyond excited. There is no English on the box so I have idea where they came from. When I get a chance I'll scan them. I'd like to send the pics to you and see if you can tell me anything about them.

Without your postings, I probably wouldn't have looked twice at them. Thanks for providing so much inspiration. Now I just have to find a Waddingtons deck!

An avalanche of decks has hit the Jase thread...

That Hunt & Sons Garter Ace deck is fantastic!
Over 200 years old :shock:
I would be over the moon just having an early deck with the Hewson courts.
:ugdance: Congratulations on your third anniversary here, and thank you for sharing this great find! :D

Also impressed you have the EPCS transformation deck.
I like the back on your Slavic deck. That's the first design back, rather than pictorial, that I remember seeing with that deck.

Was the "Unique Style" deck sold in England with those courts because of war time shortages?

I'm curious about the Biermans Great Mogul. From the wear on your cards it looks like the paper is rough on the faces? That's the same as my Aurelia decks from some years later (likely by Van Genechten), which were intended for sale in India. Do you know if yours was also an export deck? I thought that the rough paper was only used on the less expensive exports, especially decks sold to be burnt temple offerings in India. Also, does yours have smooth backs? I originally thought it was a thin paper applied to the uncuct sheets, but looking again now, with a loupe, the paper surface seems to have the same quality as the fronts, only smoothed by ink. What does it look like on your deck?

Great decks Jase. I look forward to seeing some of them in the Worldwide, along with a particular Grand entry that is coming ;)

Hiya Dazzelguts :D
I`m very pleased to have the Garter Ace Pack, It`s been on my "to do list" for a while. And the EPCS deck by karl grech was a lucky find, a bit expensive..maybe, but i thought it may be the only time i`d get a chance at buying one as so few were made.
Yes that`s the first Slavic deck i`ve seen with a geometic pattern on the back as well, My other Slavic decks have the picture of the Russian Hero on his white horse.
The Unique Style deck was sold in england during the war ,As well as my Daily Sketch Pack with the Paris pattern court`s, This was due to a shortage of Paper arriving from Scandinavia.
I`ve Compared the cards from the Biermans deck and from the Aurella box set and they are basically the same kind of rough card, although the biermans back is not as smooth as the cards from the aurelia set. The Aurelia Box set seems to have been printed better than the biermans with sharper clearer images and the paint being clear and solid as opossed to the slightly fuzzy outlines and the splotchy colouring of the Biermans. I`m not sure if they were intended for export, but judging by card stock and quality of printing i`d say they were for burning.

Here`s some Waddingtons :D
A cool Bridge set to Begin.

Here is the Russian deck I picked up for a dollar. I'm sorry the tuck front is so dark. I tried to lighten up the text as much as possible. I'm hoping that Jase, or anyone else, can give us some information on it. Thanks.

You can see this deck in the Russian thread of our Worldwide:
https://unitedcardists.com/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=5725
Towards the bottom of the first page. Lots of info there from Idoctor.

The original deck was issued at a world expo of 1937. Your deck is one of the 150 year anniversary ones, for the St. Petersburg/Leningrad factory, which has itself been reprinted many times in that box style. In the lower right corner of the box front is I-??r. I can't distinguish it in your scan but the 2 numbers are the year your particular deck was printed.

It's a beautiful deck that has been reprinted many many times. Good find getting it in one of the anniversary sets.
