Osram advertising pack

This pack was produced c. 1930 by the Vereinigte Stralsunder Spielkartenfabriken, Abteilung Altenburg, as an advertising pack for the Osram company.

The court cards show light bulbs, the main product of the company. On the Aces, the Joker, and on the back you can see the logo of the company. All pip cards have a band with illustrations of light bulbs and their usage as a top and bottom border, identical in all cards of a suit.

The Seven of Hearts shows the maker's logo. On the Ace of Diamonds you can see a faint tax stamp from Denmark if you look very close.
