Complete Uncut Rare Vintage Sheet of 40 Italian "Trevigiane-style" Playing Cards

Size: 16-1/2 x 20-1/8 inches (42 x 52.5 cm)
Condition: good (very light foxing on edges)
Date: 1940s
Printed by: Edoardo Pignalosa, Napoli (Naples).

This sheet of colorful Italian playing cards was never cut. It was printed in the first half of the 1900's and the bold vintage look makes this a great gift for guys and gals alike.

This classic Italian deck has 10 cards in suits of Coppe (Cups), Denari (Coins), Spade (Swords) and Bastoni (Clubs). The back design is lovely: a woman standing beside a column, with a sign advertising the maker of the cards.

There are some wonderful images in this deck, and three of the aces have fun sayings/proverbs in Italian: Ace of Clubs: You lose, your loss. Ace of Cups: For a point, Martino lost his head. Ace of Swords: Don't trust me if you don't have a heart.

The large, beautiful, colorful sheet looks stunning framed. It will be shipped in a sturdy cardboard tube so that it arrives safely.

The Neapolitan "Pignalosa" company was founded around 1870 and is no longer in existence. It lost its important position in playing card production in the 1950s to other manufacturers who adopted new technology for automatic cutting and plastic coating.
