Anonymous imitation of traditional Spanish Cádiz-style playing cards, c.1897. 48 cards in leather pouch inscribed with word ‘Atlanta’ and drawing of a cigar, square corners, printed by letterpress and hand-coloured with stencils. Demand in Spanish-speaking and ex-colonial countries for such cards, for use in casinos and at home, was attractive to several established manufacturers for exportation to those countries which had no playing card industry.
