Van Genechten produced packs with scenic aces for foreign markets to which he exported his products. This double-ended pack depicting Brazilian landscapes on the aces and various royal and political figures of the time on the court cards was published by Van Genechten for Brazil and appeared in price lists from 1883.
The deck is listed in the catalogue ’Turnhoutse Speelkaarten', 1983 page 129, although the spades suit in the pictured cards is different.
