Rococo period style is one of the most popular with playing card designers and manufacturers over the years, with lavish embroidered costumes and white, powdered wigs and tricorne hats. These particular designs have been published by Piatnik with decorative aces in several formats since around 1914, including “Rococo Patience”, “Luxus-Patience”, “Empire Patience”, “White Horse Patience” then as “Patience-Whist No.140” and “Mini Patience”. Piatnik’s dainty “Lady Patience” slim sized playing cards with the same courts were imported into UK by Benno Products during the 1950s & 60s.
“White Horse Patience No.2018”
The cards were also repackaged as: “White Horse Patience No.2018” during the late 1970s.
