The Colour Printing Plant: Opera Playing Cards

14 Apr

The Colour Printing Plant (USSR, Russian Federation) started to print these playing cards in 1973 and finished to print them in the early 1980s. The plant itself was closed in 2004.

The deck designed by Viktor Mihajlovich Sveshnikov. Playing cards are based on the theme of opera scenes (sometimes they are named Theatre Playing Cards).

The deck: 52 playing cards + 2 Jokers.

Dimension of playing cards: 58×90 mm – 2.28×3.54 [standard bridge size: 2.25×3.5 in – 57×89 mm]
