A delightful box holding two packs of playing cards. Hallmarked London 1897 and makers mark William Comyns. Two sections within, gilt washed and hinged cover. Art Nouveau repousse decoration each side depicts a Scottish scene with a Highland piper, a girl gathering flowers and a shepherdess. A ruined castle in the background on a rocky escarpment. The cards are complete packs, each with three Jokers and one makers card showing printer and origin, Vienna, probably of the same period. Reflection from the silver has not helped the photos.
