acques Grasset de Saint-Sauveur (1757 - 1810) is considered to have been the producer of the deck). At a later date it was printed by the French company Grimaud . The playing cards factory of Grimaud was found in 1848 in Paris by Baptiste-Paul Grimaud. I found a formal reference at the "National Bibliotheque de Paris "that is the original design from 1797.The dress and clothe are clearly in the style of the French revolution era.

size 24.5 x 19.5 , good condition , soime fraying on the trim ,fresh color , possibly original printing since newer paper tend to get yellow and brittle due to the oxidation of the wood pulp wood. Suitable for framing .
