Naipes Triunfo, c.1970-80

Spanish-suited playing cards by Cappellano, S.A., Florencio Varela 542, Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1970s

Cappellano's business activities are described as “Industrial, Comercial, Inmobiliaria” on the Four of Cups, and the address is given as Fcio Varela 542, Villa Martellí, Buenos Aires. The telephone number is T.E. 740-8767. The words “Industria Argentina” have disappeared from between the two upper cup symbols on the Four of Cups, and there is no tax stamp as this was discontinued in 1968. Around 1975 the outlines and colour plates were re-drawn and in 48-card decks two Jokers are added which resemble those used by Luis Fourvel around this time in Naipynt decks.
