Waddingtons Playing Cards Double Decks Arabesque in Vintage Japanese Black Lacquer Box

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Two decks of Waddingtons Playing Cards, made in England c.1970s. The decks have a pretty arabesque design on the backs, one red, one blue, both with gold accents.

The vintage Japanese-made wood playing card box is coated with black lacquer. It is in poor condition with chipped outer coating and missing the top part of the latch. The cards are not original to the box.

The 52 card decks do NOT have Jokers. Both are in well used vintage condition and are free from folds and tears.

Playing cards are bridge sized: 3-1/2" x 2-1/4".
Box is 4-1/4" wide x 2-1/4" deep x 3-1/2" tall.
The pictures may not reflect the actual size, please refer to these measurements.

International buyers, or buyers of multiple items, please send me a convo and I'll give you an accurate shipping quote.
