I found this bridge set at a thrift store and what caught my attention was the design on the back of the cards. I was even more surprised to find out the both of the decks had all the cards plus the two jokers. They are made by Fournier and the only information i can find on them is : N.0 260 , Hercalio Fournier VITORIA, made in Spain and that they are plastic coated and at one time had gold around the edges but has been worn off and is only visble around the corner edges of the cards. I have not been able to find out when they where made or how old they are, if anyone has any helpful tips or information please message me.

    Your cards were made by Fournier -- they look to be a fairly modern set, with an Oriental Cherry Blossom motif. No. 260 is their Bridge line. As to value, I'd guess under $10 -- watch ebay for them.

    Naipes Heraclio Fournier -- founded in 1868 -- the company is now part of the American holding, Jarden Corporation. The group formed by Fournier Playing Cards and the United States Playing Card Company, is the leader with a 35% share of the worldwide playing card market.

    Fournier made some gorgeous cards -- check out their website for more info: http://www.nhfournier.es/en/company/our-history

    Happy collecting -- Marianne Dow msdowantiques.com
