This is a Swiss souvenir pack that was most probably produced by
Johannes Müller in Schaffhouse around 1880.
This is an early edition of several later packs, one of them published to commemorate the 6th centenary of the 'Swiss Republic'.
Each Ace shows a view from Switzerland in landscape format, those are the following:
|Clubs:||Glacier de Rosenlaui|
|Hearts:||Chûte du Rhin|
The persons on the court cards wear costumes from different Swiss cantons. In detail, you can see (in the order King, Queen, Jack):
|Clubs:||Bâle / Glaris|
Appenzell / Schwyz
Valais / Argovie
|Spades:||Tessin / Neuchâtel|
Lucerne / Soleure
Zoug / Fribourg
|Hearts:||Uri / Unterwalden|
Schaffhouse / Zuric
Appenzell / Berne
|Diamonds:||Grison / St. Gall|
Berne / Vaud
Vaud / Thurgovie
They differ from the later cards by not having background illustrations,
and the colouring of the costumes is sometimes different.
In this edition, the backs are plain blue.
There is a tax stamp from the canton Vaud on the Ace of Hearts.
