I am fond of it - but just COULD not remember what it was !

 

I may possibly have too many decks...


Lol I do wonder where you keep them all, Gregory.
 

I’ve only seen odd cards in the deck. It looks nice, but I am enjoying being able to get all my decks in one box.

Howdy folks......... new here!

 

I'm trying to discover what the name of a deck is  - looks like some kind of gypsy fortune deck - sadly I can't link the images here because the website is http not https - any suggestions?

 

Thanks.

Would it work to take a screenshot and put it here? Or would that not solve the issue? No idea about http and https images...

I expect it is because you only have 2 posts at the moment. 

You can probably add them once you have 5.  We love 'identify this deck' challenges, come on back with link or inage!

Ah, you were right! I see now the option to upload a file - OK.

 

So here is the card - looks like one of those German or Polish Gypsy Fortune telling decks to me. But I found it on xtarot which I think is Czech. I messaged them on FB but no reply after 5 days... so who knows.

 

Anyone think they know the card and deck?

 

Thanks!

Ah yes I see... why are they stopping making tarot?

 

I found another pic that showed the full face of the cards - the name of the card is in multiple languages. Does that help at all?

Most decks of that type have multi-language titles. The image does help some, though - those are some very 1920's-looking people. It would have been originally created then, or the early 30's at the latest.

A reverse image search got me the czech blog, and this site. http://etarot.eu/2018.php

This guy appears to be the owner of both sites, you can contact him here and ask him the name and publisher of the cards. It might be more effective than messaging on facebook, where messages might or might not be seen. https://lukasberta.com/

 

As for why Karen and Alex are getting out of Tarot, they're tired of constantly battling piracy, the business has changed a lot since they started, there's multiple reasons.

I emailed the guy; even though I don't do sibilla decks, it interest me.

 

MRP ARE redoing the Bohemian cats though.

 

let me know if he replies!  - I emailed him a a week ago but still nothing...

Hmmm.... I found here a nice collection of historic fortune telling cards, Gypsy cards and "Aufschlag-Karten" (in German, to "aufschlagen" means to open a book, a newspaper, anything with pages).

https://www.stregato.de/blog/2018/02/sammlung-historischer-aufschlagkarten-zigeunerkarten/

there are some similar ones, but not the same. 

 

Might be worth trying Toni from http://www.thecardgeek.co.uk if you don't get a reply from the guy himself. She lives in Munich and is into kipper and lenormand, she might be able to help.

Good Luck!

OK I've been asking around and a couple of people have said they think they are Kipper cards. I have no idea about this, but I offer it up...


What? No. Absolutely not. Who's saying that?
They're in the same tradition as Ziguener Wahrsagekarten, Biedermeier Aufschlagkarten, and the decks Karen and Alex are working on. NOT Kipper.

Thanks - I googled kipper cards and although similar, I too cannot find an exact match. (and still not heard back from that guy!)

She's pretty good about answering facebook DMs. 
I'm doubtful she has the answer to this, though. Cards of this type predominate in eastern Europe, but you don't see a lot of them in Germany and when you do spot them, it's the common ones like Piatnik. 
Go ahead and try, though. It can't hurt. 😉
