Naipes PORTEÑO Spanish-suited playing cards manufactured by C. Della Penna S.A.C.I., Buenos Aires, c.1950
Naipes Porteño was one of Della Penna's leading brands of Spanish-suited playing cards, alongside Naipes Inca. It was produced in successive editions until the company was taken over in 1978. The brand name appears to have been registered in 1944, however it is not known whether it was already being published before this date. Over the years the logo on the four of cups changed. Earlier editions show the Palacio del Congreso, as seen on this page, but sometime during the 1960s it changed to a view of Buenos Aires port, perhaps to differentiate from "Naipes Congreso".
