Standard English pattern with single-figure courts manufactured for L.N. Mann by Van Genechten, Turnhout, c.1890, featuring a mock English duty ace of spades and probably destined for British possessions overseas. L.N. Mann is recorded as a trading name for Mesmaekers, also of Turnhout, who may have been the actual exporter of the cards.
