Listed here are 4 singles from a beautiful round deck made by Arrow Playing Card Co., c.1930, with a delightful art deco design on the backs,. The deck from which these cards are taken is incomplete, but the backs are striking.
Arrow was the name used in the early years by what is now known as "Arrco Playing Card Co." The Dawson/Hochman Encyclopedia reports that Arrco was forced to discontinue the use of the name Arrow for legal reasons shortly after the company began; these round "Discus" decks would later be published under the Arrco name.
The 4 cards offered in this listing are the 4 Kings.
The cards are in excellent lightly used condition, with evidence of handling and very light dusting in places. Much of the gold gilt remains, and the design on the backs is still vivid.
If you would like to purchase a different number of these cards (less or more), please contact us.
