Thanks for the info Dazzleguts! I believe the date on the box is '77. I didn't think or care if the deck was rare or not. I'm just happy to finally have one of those beautiful Russian decks Jase is always showing. I'll head over to the Russian page and check it out. BTW, do you know if it is already in P52 and if so, what I should search for to find it?

Edit: I found it on P52 under Palekh, Black

I know Jase was busy - you should check out the posting of the Mamluk cards that Jase made in the Egypt thread of Worldwide. :shock:

Hiya Flashcards :D
The Palekh deck was the one that turned me on to Russian decks in the first place, a real beauty. i would love to get a pack that was printed by the St Petersburg factory (hopefully i will find one at a good price)
A great find at only a dollar 8-)
I believe you are looking at the wrong date for your pack. The number to look at is at the very bottom on the right.
Like dazzelguts i just can`t make it out,It looks to me like l-82r which means it is from 1982.
Many thanks to my time-travelling buddy Dazzelguts for helping out with the information on the palekh deck :D

Here`s some cards.
"Das Soldaten Tarock" Piatnik edition No.286599, Printed in 2009.
This deck is a reprint of a deck printed by paitnik in 1918 titled "Allerfeinste Soldat-Tarock"
1490.JPG

A pair of Gustav Klimt Boxsets from Piatnik. Adele (No.250347) Fritza (No.250149)
Both sets have Piatniks own Standard English Pattern court cards.
1491.JPG

Great Russian Standard ,Printed by Piatnik No.2133.
This set reprints a pair of Atlas Decks from between 1860 to 1917.The Jokers are Piatnik`s own.
1492.JPG

"Buern-schnapser" Printed by Piatnik No.1756.The cards from this set show the Austro-Czech version of the Wilhelm Tell Pattern.

Nice catch on the date Jase. That part with the OCT really looks like an October date in English, but it must be some other designation since it appears on the white Palekh that nECrO posted at the beginning of the Russia thread, as well as on my white and black Palekh decks, always with OCT but different #s.

The "Das Soldaten Tarock" is beautiful. Very painterly. Love how they made the images full card to really show that off. Looks like WW1 was the subject?

So I came upon this seller on this one vintage selling website, who has a large collection of vintage decks for sale (for pretty high prices).

I just thought that Jase and others reading this thread might find something interesting from there. Anyways here's the link: https://www.rubylane.com/shop/twoforhisheels/ilist

Hiya Dazzelguts, Yes very confusing :ugthink: i thought that was an actual date when i first started getting the decks as well. If you look at my "slavic" deck from the previous page, it has a prefix of TY instead of the OCT.Not sure what it means. But the actual dating of the deck is from the L-##r At the bottom left corner.

I agree a beauty for sure , The courts are truly remarkable and the 21 tarok cards are stunning, yes the paintings are from the great war. I`m always gutted when i can only show so many of the cards...but thats what the Worldwide Time Machine forum is for ;) aintitso

Thanks for the link Roope. :D :D Always good to see these sellers site`s, even if its for price comparison..
I had a quick look, will take a good look when i`ve got some time off, While the prices may be high ,i have seen higher but then i have seen a lot lower as well...Who knows there may be that "ONE" deck that i`ve been looking for, thats worth (for me anyway) spending that little bit extra.

Here`s some Cherry Coloured Funk.
First up is a De La Rue Piquet set. 36 cards per deck with both decks having the same back design and colour, D6 court cards with Medium size index dates the deck from 1890 to 1910.
1498.JPG

Next is Jass Plus printed by AGMuller of Switzerland. The deck was designed by Muster Geschutzt in 2001
Scans of the full set of court cards can be seen in the switzerland section of the Worldwide time machine.
1499.JPG

Rockwell International. I have not been able to find any info on these beauties i`m afraid .American printer i think?? The court cards are fantastic.. shame about the back :roll:
1500.JPG

And finally today a pair of "named" Barribal backs from Waddingtons dated around 1932-1940.

Love the Spade Ace in the Oracle deck.
The courts all look like zombies with those blank eyes. :shock:
Also qualifies as a no-revoke deck with the 4 pip colours.
Great find Jase!

Hey Buddy..Thanks,yeh the one Nintendo deck that i was on the lookout for...i just happened to find after discussing it with you in a PM after about a year of looking...you must be my lucky charm
:idea: By the way i`m would really like a pack of Waddingtons with the first discarded Ace....(well you never know)

Here`s a few sheets of Paper
1506.JPG

In the latter half of the nineteenth century several German publishers assembled into portfolios as many as a hundred large, full-colour sheets of pictures of unrelated subjects.The Munich firm of K. Braun and Fr. Schneider in 1852 published "Munchner Bilderbogen"(Munich Picture Sheets), which included a transformation pack with one suit per sheet.
1507.JPG

It is not known who invented the designs and made the pictures, but the initials "JB" appear on seventeen of the cards. Sometimes the sheets can be found without colour.
The printing was done by at least four printers, and each sheet had a short poem in German, Dutch or English. There were at least eight editions in German.
1508.JPG

The English-language edition was numbered 21,22,23,24 and has two sets of names at the bottom of the sheets.
on the left - Leipzig: William Engelmann and on the right - London: A.S. Joseph, Myers & Co - William Tegg & Co. It would seem that the English-language sheets were printed in Germany but distributed by several publishers in London.

I've been trying for that Waddingtons, but it remains elusive :(
Maybe we need to discuss it more. ;)

Your "pieces of paper" would sure look good as a deck of cards, like in that experiment you did a while back with reproducing a deck?

I think you flustered Jase a bit there Roope ;)

So the Cocteau Twins are serving up the drug of UC in your thread Jase?
Great decks being that addictive a substance I would have to agree.

You've been showing a lot of antiques lately, and this one in a contemporary wooden box. Very cool 8-)
What does the paper feel like? Does it vary a lot between the different old deck makers?

HaHa..i`m "Head over Heels" you caught the reference ;) i popped one a few posts back and was going to continue for a while to see if anyone caught what i was up to...and you did it after two :lol: :lol: must be your Iceblink luck.
Lizzy`s voice just sends shivers up my spine :ugthink: :ugthink: .

Yeh the antique decks are all the same card stock with no finish, not rough but not glossy smooth either (I`m not a very good deck reviewer :lol: :lol: ) The cards in my collection start having smooth finishes at basically the same time as round corners comes in around 1880`s that area.
I wasn`t planning on another post but here`s ame more cards,
Here`s a Reynolds besique set from the same time period as the De La Rue from the last post around 1862-1870.

Love that surreal looking ironwork pattern on the backs of the Besique. May I prevail upon you to send me a scan?
