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:

A Goodall and Sons Bezique deck from c.1863-1870. This is the first Goodalls "Own" Ace of spades design which is based on the "Old Frizzle" Ace of Spades. there are a couple of versions of this Ace ,all identical except the Lettering, this one is the second version which came out in 1863 a year after the first version, all version ran until 1870.
