Naipes 'CASTILLA' Elaboración S.A. Perfecta, Eduardo Antonio Chemmes, Olazabal 1473-75, Buenos Aires, c.1950

Naipes 'Castilla' were produced with blue or brown backs during the early 1950s. This rare manufacturer probably had cards printed by Ernesto Flaiban who was also printing virtually identical cards for Mario Colombo, E. P. Franco and others around this time.
