Osram Advertising Playing Cards

Osram advertising playing cards printed during the 1930s by Vereinigte Stralsunder Spielkartenfabriken (V.S.S.), Altenburg, Germany. The manufacturer's logo can be seen on the Seven of Hearts. The court cards feature double-ended light-bulb people (the Kings are repeated in each suit but the Queens and Jacks have different attributes) and the numeral cards have vignettes at each end illustrating how Osram light bulbs lighten the darkness.
