Playing Cards Size: 12.7 x 10 cm 2 x 55 Imperial Playing Cards
Play with the crowned heads! The card deck presents the members of the Imperial family as 'king' cards. This card deck is a real speciality. The original edition was printed 1898 by the Viennese playing card manufacturer Piatnik on the occasion of the Golden Jubilee of Emperor Franz Joseph. Presumably Emperor Franz Joseph wasn't happy about the representation of himself and his family and ordered to destroy the cards. This reprint by Piatnik is not only for fans of the Monarchy a must-have.
