salbla1 salbla2 DKS120:  Tarok. Ca.1918. Price: € 100.00. Blå ryg. Kom første gang ca.1905. Version med  jugendstilmønster på ryggen, og versionen med modstillet Salomon – Holmblad på klør knægt. Godt brugt spil, uden at være dårligt, men man kan se sliddet på kortenes midte. Ingen væsentlige buk eller bræk. Kortene ser mere slidt ud, end de er. Det skyldes, at de er trykt på gulligt karton (jeg har selv en anden version, som er trykt på hvidere karton). Fire kort er netop erstattet af kort fra et “hvidt” sæt, bl.a. hjerter dame. Ingen æske. Toldstempler på ruder es, – et grønt, der angiver perioden efter 1918, og MÅSKE et tidligere dansk? (Eller måske et australsk ??? – for spillet har været i Australien de sidste 100 år). Sjældent spil. Blue reverse. Version with Jugend-style design on the reverse, and the version with opposite Salomon – Holmblad on the Jack of Clubs. Well used deck, without being poor, but one can see the usage in the middle of the cards. No serious bends or breaks. The cards look more used, than they are. It is because they are printed on yellowish cardboard (I have a similar version printed on whiter background). Four cards are replaced from a “white” deck, among them the Queen of Hearts. No box. Tax stamps on the Ace of Diamonds (One Danish, green after 1918 and another perhaps earlier – or perhaps an Australian ??? – because the deck has been in Ausralia for the last 100 years). Rare deck.

    SOLD DKS121: Tarok. Ca.1918. Pris: Kr.600.00.  Same deck as DKS120 and DKS122. A little more worn, a single card has a non-serious bend in a corner.
