Kavalierskarte (Cavalier Cards)

This pack was made around 1890 by F. A. Lattmann in Goslar. The maker's name is on the Deuce of Acorns and on the Deuce of Hearts.

The pack shows the so-called 'Lower Saxon pattern' with cavaliers on all court cards. Normally, there are also Sixes for this pattern, but these are missing from my pack. This may be due to the fact that it is rather late, when such cards were (in Northern Germany) mostly used for Skat, and you need only 32 cards for that game.
