Swiss Spanish-Suited Cards, c.1875

Spanish-suited playing cards manufactured by J. Müller for export to Latin American countries, c.1875. Around this time the Müller workshops were equipped with the most modern machines available and were widening their playing card range, looking to the export of playing cards to other countries and continents, such as Central & South America. The designs are in a “classic” style, with some “medieval” traits.
