Strip Tease

Right: click the box to zoom→

Strip Tease is an amusing card game for adults featuring characters involved in the performance and subsequent prosecution of an imaginary strip tease show, published and registered by Raphael Industries Ltd of 33 Lower Regent St, London, in 1937. The deck contains four suits: Striptease, Theatre, Court and Prudie. One tries to avoid taking tricks containing cards of the Striptease suit because, presumably, we disapprove. Some of the characters are: Spoil-Sport, Miss Prim, Sour-Puss, Informer, Wowser, Snark as well as Police Officers, Lawyers and a Judge. The strip tease scenes are slightly risqué!

Strip Tease was registered at Stationers Hall in 1937 to Raphael Industries. They probably had it printed by De la Rue. An unopened Strip Tease box is sealed in cellophane and has a gold seal type sticker on the end. This seal is identical to the one that was used by De la Rue.
