Specs: Tarocco Soprafino is a gorgeous and most authentic reproduction of the original 78 card deck of F. Gumppenberg (Milan), which dates back to around 1835. Gentle markings and stains add appeal to the antique look of the unvarnished cards. Card corners are square. Backs are reversible (a simple pattern of dots design). Size: 4 1/8'' x 2 1/8'', 10. 5 x 6, cm.
The Soprafino originates from 1830 when Fernando Gumppenberg, one of the most ingenious innovators of playing cards, commissioned Carlo Dellarocca to redesign the classic 78-count deck. Each card is delicately colored by hand, earning it name Soprafino (very refined).
