Known as "The Theatre" deck it is hand coloured and engraved. All the courts are based on actors and actresses dressed in the costumes of the various characters they portrayed, with the name of each character written across the middle : Saladin. Lancelot, Lear Macbeth. Maria Stuart etc The cards are a little smudged and faded from age but overall they are in very good condition with no bends or tears. Interesting pack of cards. 52 complete.
