Well......they ain`t Waddingtons. :lol:
I am not sure why you posted these here ? I`m not the best with American decks but...
The Court Cards were used by the American Playing Card Co of Kalamazoo (see some decks here a.trionfi.eu/WWPCM/WWPCM/usa/apcc.htm) Also Russeell & Morgan used these courts on a few of their decks as well e.g Congress N0.404 & Texan N0.45 (see below).
As for the Ace. Sorry but i have not seen this before, There is a advertising joker by A.P.C.C that looks like your ace (a.trionfi.eu/WWPCM/decks10/d08525/d08525.htm) so it could be an advertising ace for a company etc.
thats all i got sorry,As i`ve said i`m not good with American decks,hope it helps :D

So here`s a set of Texan No.45, published by Philip Morris in 1984 .The set faithfully reproduces the Russell & Morgan Texan No.45 decks from the late 1800`s.

:D Hey Bruno T`aint no thing :P

Albrecht Drurer....Brilliant, his woodcuts are out of this world. :drool:

I was reading up on my circular cards by the master P.W c.1500 for the worldwide, and it seems that master P.W ,a contemporary of durer`s, was highly influenced by his works especially his animal sketches. The copperplate cards by Vigil solis c.1544 are also influenced by durer`s works especially the horses and riders of the court cards.
Will see those two decks in the Worldwide Time Machine shortly.

"Jeu des drapeaux" or "Game of flags", This deck was originally produced by Galleaux of France in 1814 and has been reprinted many times by many manufacturers over the years. This Limited Edition pack was printed in 1977 by Edizione del Solleone di Vito Arienti.
1300.JPG

A pair of Egyptian decks titled "Abul Sembel" printed by Moharrem Press Alexandia ,One Red back and one Blue and came in a nice leather box.
1301.JPG

"Chichikov & Co." produced by Alexsey Orleansky in 2011 and illustrated by P. Boklevsky. This Russian deck is a companion deck to the "Dead Souls" deck i showed in an earlier post, and it shows more illustrations by the same artist based on characters from the Dead Souls Novel by Nikolai Gogol.

A couple of "Bricks" and a "Un-cut" of Chinese money cards, Made in Belgium for the Asian market. the bricks have 10 packets of cards, 60 cards per pack and the Un-cut is a printers proof sheet to test plates. The un-cut is signed and dated Van Genechten 1890 but am unsure who manufactured the Bricks.
more information about these cards can be seen in the chinese section of worldwide.
