German fortune telling pack

This pack was produced at the end of the 19th century by an unknown German maker.

It is intended for fortune telling, and on each card there are three prophecies. The text is in a version of German used before the spelling reform in 1903 as you can see on some of the cards. The illustrations look often strange to me, and they do not always reflect the prophecies. The cards are coloured by hand.
