Portuguese pack with illustrated Aces

Presumably this pack was produced around 1890 by J. Maillard in Lisbon.

The pattern is similar to that of some packs produced by other makers around that time.

The Aces are illustrated, and the special feature is that besides different scenes they often show birds, and a crowned shield with puttos on the Ace of Diamonds.
