The Knavery of The Rump
« on: December 03, 2016, 10:31:53 AM »
Not quite sure where to put these, but I'll go with this section!
They're not cigarette or trade cards but they are highly collectable.
This is a set of 17th century playing cards and although I don't have any original cards - I should be so lucky! - I do own a pack/deck/set of facsimile cards which are generally available for about £11-£12
I was encouraged to look further having seen a chap on the Antiques Roadshow last January or February who had collected many originals and was appealing for missing ones. They were displayed on a table and looked absolutely beautiful under glass.
Nelson apparently had a deck - short of the Ace and III of Hearts - but archivists have managed to source the missing cards.

An explanation of each card can be found HERE.

Having a real interest in history and collectable cards I just think that they're worthy of a place in anyone's collection, and I believe that they are worth sharing on here.
And, just for the sake of it, I have also bought a deck of 'MARLBOROUGH'S VICTORIES' which feature many similar designs.
Awesome!

Didn't quite know what to expect when I opened this post, Roger!
Lovely cards.  Have always loved cards, since as a very young lad, playing with my gran.  She had some wonderful packs.  Nothing like these but some lovely gilt edged cards with birds on the back and others.  Wonder what happened to them?
UtS!

They'll probably turn up on Antiques Roadshow one day, Baz. :D
