Abbey Playing Cards

Abbey Playing Cards made in Belgium by La Turnhoutoise, 1950s. Founded in 1881, La Turnhoutoise manufactured cards for markets the world over, including this Abbey brand for the English market with the ace of spades marked as ‘foreign’. The company was taken over by Brepols in 1960, who in turn was merged along with Van Genechten and Léonard Biermans to become Carta Mundi in 1970.
