Limited Late 19th Century Square Faro Gilded Playing Cards
LIMITED EDITION: Only 500 printed! Will NOT be reprinted.
This reproduction deck is based off the Squared Faro #366 which was first produced by Russell & Morgan Co. in 1887 to supply gambling casinos. Faro was the most popular gambling game at that time.
It has been digitally recreated to accurately represent the artwork on the deck but on a modern USPCC printed deck with rounded corners.
The Court cards are full-length figures which contain many of the idiosyncratic features associated with designs re-copied from the woodblock era.
This deck would be a great practical prop for any themed Wild West parties or to use in gambling magic routines.
Please note gilding can wear off with heavy use.
