This reproduction deck is based off the Squared Faro #366 which was first produced by Russell & Morgan Co. in 1887 to supply gambling casinos. Faro was the most popular gambling game at that time.
It has been digitally recreated to accurately represent the artwork on the deck, but on a modern USPCC printed deck with rounded corners.
The Court cards are full-length figures which contain many of the idiosyncratic features associated with designs re-copied from the woodblock era.
This deck would be a great practical prop for any themed wild west parties or to use in gambling magic routines. Superb appearance and handling!

Thank you for shipping my cards as you advised you process from on Mondays. They arrived in the mail intact and just so neatly packaged thank you. My last decade at 84 years late Welsh Grandmother Eileen Rooney née Welsh Mason Percy Williams who married Welsh Witch Emily Morgan, well my beautiful Welsh Grandmother of Williams and Morgan descent taught me Patience (not Solitaire) with your Faro cards of which she also had Taro which I did not take up, only her Patience and the Lord’s Prayer. I will buy more of your Faro cards as backup and to give away to my friends. Please. If interested, please enjoy some of my free music on me at iesusstate.bandcamp.com. I notice your business is located in Queenies so I do say my Scottish-English Grandfather on The Other Side (Nobel Peace Laureate Seamus Heaney Poem) of my family is alive and well at the ripe old age of 92 years in South East Queensland. My Great Grandmother’s Maiden Name was Morgan. Your Faro Cards mean a lot to me, especially coming from my Grandmother Eileen née Williams. I love how Faro Cards are Traditional and unpaginated without Arabic Numerals. I’m a Traditional Anglican and Catholic. I’m gonna square off like dovetail games of Patience with your Faro Cards. Patience is a Virtue! Thank you for including a PIPER MAGIC Sticker; I’m a heavy tobacco smoker, only tobacco. And thank you so much for Faro Cards. THANK! YOU!
