18th Century English Playing Cards

Regular price $ 6.00 Sale

This particular deck of cards is taken from an 18th century deck from England. Notice that none of the suit cards have numbers. When cards were first mass produced much of the population was illiterate, so the numbers weren't necessary. 

History Fact: The suits we know today were originally French suits and were adopted in both France and England when mass production began.
