This is an incredible vintage set of KEM plastic playing cards. The design on the cards is of a pair of flamingos, one deck is red and the other is green. They come in a black storage case with the KEM logo carved into the lid. I have done much research, and I believe this case to be Bakelite, a hard plastic invented in 1907. Pieces made with Bakelite are HIGHLY collectible and valuable in todays collectors market. If you notice a smell of vinegar or formaldehyde, this is a sure sign that this is a Bakelite plastic case, which adds greatly to its value. These two decks each include a joker, a card replacement card, and a KEM company information card. These cards show no wear, so obviously they have never been used. There is a little booklet included that tells how to care for your cards and also why KEM playing cards are the best. It is a very charming read. The ace of spades shows a copyright date of 1935 and the romance booklet shows a copyright date of 1940. When the box is closed up it measures 3 3/4" / 9.5cm long X 1 5/8" / 4cm wide X 2 5/8" / 7cm high. What an interesting and fun collectible game this would be to own.
