ABOUT THIS DECK
This wonderful, colorful deck was printed in chromolithography and published by B.P. Grimaud from Paris as "Cartes Indiennes" in 1890. The courts all show Indian figures as Kings, Queens and Jacks and they are set against a floral background design. On the number cards we also find a floral design in the background, which gives the deck an Art Nouveau look. The Whist deck of 52 cards has gold edges and there are some gold printed details on the courts too. It was obviously a luxury edition.
