Transformation Playing Cards

£15.00

Perfectly at home in your waistcoat pocket, or scattered about your gaming table, these playing cards published by Harry Margary are a real talking point. Each card in each themed deck bears a different image taken from an original period engraving. Marvellous for distracting your competitors at piquet but just make sure you keep your own eyes on the game!

Each card measures approximately 3.9" x 2.5" (9.9cm x 6.4cm) (the Transformation cards are just a fraction bigger). Cards are made of thick white card, with image and characters on one side and blank white backs. Each deck of cards is supplied in its own handy white cardboard box.

These fascinating cards were first published in 1714. In addition to the usual suit and number markings, they bear figures and diagrams which can be used for fortune telling. A contemporary set of instructions for use is printed on two of the cards. (She'll meet a tall dark stranger who's accomplished at whist? You don't say.)
