"Life is not a matter of holding good cards, but of playing a poor hand well."
~ Robert Louis Stevenson

 

Found at market in Paris and delicately rendered in solid celluloid composite, these early 20th century French Celluloid and Wood Playing Card Holders are sure to be a winner at your next card or game night.

Playing-card design as we know it today—double-ended court cards with clearly marked suits—became standardized in the late 1800s, with the French establishing the tradition of the card values according to court ranking. Deftly hand painted and delightful in every way, the dapper Bon Vivant and regal Queen of Hearts feature bright colors and charming layered details.

Lightly press the top hat or the center heart silhouette found along the top edge of the celluloid cover and the cases instantly flip open to reveal your favorite deck of playing cards neatly stored in the wooden case.

Whether a seasoned player or novice, now is the perfect time to begin a new pastime! 


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. Select either Queen of Hearts or Bon Vivant from the drop down menu above. Sold separately. In very good antique condition. Card Holders measure 3.25" x  5.5" x 1.125".
