Do you know a date on it Jase?

Amazing Bezique set too - the Willis designs are so fine and nicely balanced. I love the light blue line work.

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!
I am in awe. What a collection! Thanks for sharing (I assume!) SOME of it with us all!
