Tarock from Frankfurt

This pack was produced around 1880 by C. L. Wüst in Frankfurt/Main. The company name is on the Jack of Clubs, the logo is on the Ace of Diamonds (not shown here).

This is a Tarock pack that has often two corresponding scenes on the trumps. Sometimes they are rural versus civic, as on Tarock-12 with a ballroom scene and a village dance, or they are like on Tarock-14, fishing versus hunting, or Tarock-15, photography versus painting. You will certainly recognize the idea on many of the trumps.

On a wall calendar on Tarock-4 (in the upper illustration) you can possibly recognize the date 1867. This might be the year of the original design. The Wüst logo on the Ace of Diamonds was registered in 1877.
