Historical Playing Cards, Chinoiserie pattern

£25.00

A faithful reproduction of a historical trick-taking game Tarot deck of cards in a unusual Chinoiserie style from 1820 based on the French-suited card with orientalist stylised illustrated face and trump cards.

This deck includes numbers 1-10, an ace, two male face cards, Jack, and King and a Queen per each suit, as well as 21 trump cards

A natural progression for our shop and our love of paper, given the parallel narrative between card manufacturing and decorative paper making both utilising the craft knowledge of woodblock print.
