Naipes CONGRESO by C. Della Penna S.A.C.I., Buenos Aires, c.1966
Naipes Congreso was one of Della Penna's brands of Anglo-American type playing cards, alongside Naipes Guarany, Naipes Inca and Naipes Ombú. The title refers, of course, to the Palacio del Congreso, the imposing greco-roman style, granite government buildings in Buenos Aires, completed in 1906 and which are illustrated on the box, the ace of spades and the reverse. The court cards are based on the designs of Goodall. This example shows the company name as C. Della Penna S.A.C.I. and dates from c.1965-67.
