Skat pack designed by Franciszek Bunsch
32-card German-suited Skat pack designed in 1963 by Franciszek Bunsch, showing traditional costumes of Polish folklore. The designs are based loosely on the German Prussian pattern but with some deviations: the pip cards show Polish towns. These cards were popular in Upper and Lower Silesia. Manufactured by KZWP, Cracow.
