German Shooting Festival 1884

This heavily used pack was made by Eckert & Zahn Nachf. in Leipzig and published and printed printed by Aug. Kürth, also in Leipzig. The names are on the Ten of Bells and on the Nine of Acorns.
Correction: I initially mentioned a wrong maker, although the correct name is on the cards.

The pack was issued to commemorate the German Shooting Festival 1884 in Leipzig. The court cards show shooters and related people. Most of the pip cards show buildings in Leipzig, but also some others, like e.g. the monuments on the Eight and Seven of Leaves. The Tens all have allegorical illustrations, and the Sixes (shown in the bottom row) have small scenes.
