Naipes Tipo Español “Naipes y Casinos” - 40 cartas - Industria Peruana
This particular version of the Spanish Cadiz pattern has been used in Peru since before 1900 and has become a sort of Peruvian National Pattern. For many years foreign-made copies were imported, including those made in Spain for the Estanco de Naipes del Perú, until Peruvian manufacturers began to produce their own. In the example shown here, dating from c.1990, the box states: “OM Naipes y Casinos / Reg Unif. 0783420 / Industria Peruana”.
The box, and the back of the cards, features a circular motif including a zodiac.
