Luxury Whist Cards from Prague

This pack was produced c. 1860 by Emanuel Klogner in Prague.

The court cards show a luxury pattern, with the maker's name and address on the Jack of Clubs. The cards originally had no index signs, but someone later carefully made them by hand. The curious thing is that he/she used a mixture of the English K(ing), Q(ueen), J(ack), and the German K(önig), D(ame), B(ube).
