Hand-drawn Transformation cards

This is a standard pack with international pattern produced by de la Rue & Co. in London around 1855.

The special thing about it is that many of the pip cards have been transformed by ink drawings. I am showing only those card which have transformations, together with the Ace and court cards of Spades, to characterize he original pack. Note that some of the transformations have not been completed, they are still pencil designs (e.g. on Five of Spades and the Nine of Diamonds). There are some more pencil designs on other cards, but those are too faint to be shown.
