The maker's name was originally on the sash of the Jack of Hearts, but it has been blackened.
The designs of the cards are similar to some used in Austria and Belgium by different makers. Presumably the designs were produced by an Austrian engraver; it is definite that the Aces were made by one.
The illustrations on the Aces show scenes from the Netherlands:
|Clubs:||Leyde / Harlem|
|Spades:||Utrecht / Rotterdam le marché|
|Hearts:||Palais d'industrie d'Amsterdam / La Haye|
|Diamonds:||Groningue l'hôtel de ville / Arnheim|
Note the Prussian tax stamp on the Ace of Hearts.
