Bavarian Tarock

These cards were made by the Münchener Spielkarten-Fabrik (that is F. X. Schmid in Munich) c. 1910. The maker's name is on the King of Hearts, the company logo is on the Six of Hearts.

The cards show the single-faced Bavarian pattern in the so-called 'Stralsund version'. Note that the Deuces have as their index sign not a 'D' but an 'A' (for Ace). Cards like these were often used to play Sheepshead or Bavarian Tarock.
