Adolph Holst. Børnespillekort No.1
The producer behind this deck has hitherto been unknown, – and it has “always” been a riddle, why 16-08 was named A.H.2, in many varieties, – because: Where was No.1?? Now solved. This deck was bought as new in Copenhagen in 1938, so that is as close as can be to a production year.
Published ca.1930. Size: 2,9 x 4, cm. Blue diagonal lines or thin green vertical lines on the reverse. Solely black/red colours, or also blue/yellow. The thickness of the cardboard varies, as does the colour.
