‘Aquae Sulis’ is Georgina Harvey's second design, in which the double-ended courts are reminiscent of classical gods & goddesses. ‘Aquae Sulis’ refers to the City of Bath: Sulis was the local Celtic goddess of the thermal springs that still feed the spa baths, which the Romans called ‘Aquae Sulis’ (“the waters of Sulis”).
Derived from “Cartes Turques” first made by Glanz, then later by van Genechten, Brepols & Piatnik. 3 double-ended dragon Aces and one Adam/Eve Ace with a coiled serpent. The Courts & Joker are in oriental costume. The title card shows Karl's phoenix motif & a banner with the legend: “Resurgam”.
‘Patience No.21’ is a 52-card miniature deck with double-ended courts and a Joker holding a fan of cards. The figures in this pack are much simpler than many of Gerich's courts - partly reflecting the limited space available. The designs are inspired by ‘Salon No.66’ by V.S.S., originally a Büttner design.
