These cards were published c. 1880 with the name
(Fine Playing-Cards No. 3). In spite of this German name they were not made in Germany but in Belgium. The maker is most probably Brepols & Diercks Zoon in Turnhout.

The court cards show a pattern that has been used by several Belgian makers. In this pack there are views from Paris on the aces:
Clubs: Pont Neuf et statue de Henri IV à Paris / Porte St Martin à Paris
Spades: L’eglise des Invalides à Paris / Canons des Invalides à Paris
Hearts: Theatre lyrique à Paris / Place de la Concorde à Paris
Diamonds: La bourse à Paris / Jardin de Tuileries à Paris
