Playing Cards by Azevedo & Cia Ltda

Poker playing cards produced by Azevedo & Cia Ltda (Recife, Brazil). An old and amazing method for printing was used – lithography. Any modern publisher isn’t able to print such “alive” court cards these days.

This Brazilian company was a cigarette maker. Some sigarette makers had their own lithographic presses to print labels for their packs of cigarettes. Sometimes they also used them to print playing cards. The deck was printed by Lithographia da Fabrica Caxias in accordance with the Ad card. As I understand this “fabrica” was a part of  Azevedo & Cia Ltda.

The designer – “?”.

The deck: 52 playing cards + 1 Joker + 1 Ad Card. Poker size. Year – “?” (I think it can be 1990-1930).
