ABOUT THIS DECK
A reproduction of a French Revolution deck. Pictures of the original cards are in the centres of the cards, with indices in all four corners. The numbered cards were grey with hand-done suits showing the number in these pictures (for example the two of diamonds shows two hand-done diamonds, and no indices, even for the court cards. The court cards have artwork showing various people, who are listed on the back of the tuck box. The flap tucks into the front of the tuck box rather than the back. The backs are two-way with borders. It is a concentric line-drawing with spears, ribbons, and leaves in brown ink on cream. There are no jokers, but three extra cards with liberty caps for indices. One tells about the original publication of the deck in French, and one in English. The other says, "Services Commerciaux de la Réunion des Museés Nationuax."
