Naipes Porteño by C. Della Penna S.A.C.I., dating from c.1955-60. 40 cards in original (somewhat damaged) box. Slight browning on some cards, otherwise very fine condition. Reverse: blue cross-hatch.
The four of cups shows the "Marianne" tax stamp and the "Palacio del Congreso" logo with clouds added. The court cards are a simplified version of the Spanish Catalan pattern which has become the typical design found in Argentina. The little bunches of grapes on the five of swords are only found on Della Penna's cards.
