Golden Tarot Visconti-Sforza Card Deck DGOLTAR2
The tarot deck included in this beautiful set was commissioned around 1451 by the Visconti and Sforza families, and is one of the oldest tarot decks in existence. The images on the cards have been faithfully recreated, showing members of the Sforza and Visconti families in period garments.
The borders of the elegant cards are adorned with gold metallic ink. The accompanying book provides a history of the Visconti-Sforza cards, 35 of which are now in the collection of the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York City. The symbolism of the different cards is described; along with that you'll find explanations of various layouts you may use when seeking information about certain aspects of life.
The handsome box holds the book and card deck side by side, with a purple satin reading cloth folded and placed underneath the book.
