This is a vintage collection of King playing cards circa 1950's. Each was handpicked for this piece and it would be a great gift to a card player, a great wall hanging in any guy's room or maybe the game room! ♣ ♦ ♥ ♠

In the standard English playing card deck, the king and the other face cards represent no one in particular. The king of hearts is sometimes called the "suicide king" because he appears to be sticking his sword into his head. However, it is debated whether or not the sword and hand holding it actually belong to the king, due to a different design pattern that could indicate someone else stabbed him. The king of hearts is the only one of the kings without a mustache, whereas the king of diamonds is the only king not depicted carrying a sword, wielding an axe instead.

These cards were found at my local antique mall and were first purchase new in the 1950's and it's original owner kept them in great condition. These cards are displayed on black construction paper in a black shadow box frame with only glass as a background. The frame is 15" wide by 12" tall and 1 1/2" thick. The cards are placed between the two pieces of glass. The back of the frame does have hardware to hang on the wall but it also looks great placed on a shelf.
