B. Dondorf GmbH: Neue Klubkarte No.422

Playing Card manufacture: B. Dondorf (1833-1933), Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

Dondorf's “Neue Klubkarte No.422” (New Clubcards) were published during the period 1926-1933. The designs, printed in six colours, are a meld between the standard international (Anglo-American) pattern and German-style French-suited cards; so elements from various other standard patterns can be detected in the designs. This attempt to create a new standard pattern unfortunately was not a success; hence the deck is not easy to find today.
