I've always got an eye out for antique playing cards, which I especially love for the pips (the lush red and shape of shape of these hearts makes me swoon!) These are from a 52 card French B.P Grimaud deck from the 19th century, which was missing 2 cards, so I'm selling by the suit. I think they're beautiful enough to frame, but they also make nice party favors, or are just nice to have around. These have pretty pink backs and a little bleed around the edges of the hearts, which I love.
The queen of hearts is missing--surely she ran off with someone interesting! Otherwise all are here, ace through king. There are some black ink marks on the 8 and some light gray stains on the 6, otherwise very good condition. Cards measure 3 3/8" x 2 5/16".
