Romance Español

I’m posting the images of this deck on the occasion of Sheryl’s birthday, and I’ll make no comment about the relation of the first image with reality.

The Romance Español dual deck of cards was designed by Carlos Saez de Tejada, the artistic director of the Fournier card company in Spain. They were produced in 1951.

While the box is slightly beat up, the cards are in great shape. The face cards, like so many I collect, are unique and I just love the style of the illustrations.

Below are images of the face cards, the box and accompanying insert, as well as some of the aces and other cards.
