Swedish playing cards ( Offason), 56 c.
This patience deck, ( one of a pair) is made by Offason of sweden. The pattern was originaly made by Öbergs at the turn of the 20thc, inspired by German "luxury" patterns
Note the fact that the costumes worn by the courts have a colour scheme, the Spades wearing green, the Clubs, purple, Diamonds, blue, and Hearts, red.
Also note the queen of clubs, who carries a fan.
