Ferdinand Schober Besançon Tarot, c. 1750
This is a German made Besançon tarot. The banner between the 2 Deniers says, “Feine Taros Bey Ferdinand Schober In Neuhaus 1750,” and as with other Besançon packs it has, instead of the Papesse and Pape, we have Junon and Jupiter. The Moon is full face instead of in profile and the Lovers' Eros is masked. In this quirky deck the expressions on the characters are great and not as sour as some others e.g., check out the Fou and the Ace Coupes. And whoever colored them did a creative job.
Standard tarot card size, 2-3/4" x 4-3/4" and printed on premium card stock, and comes in a tuck box.
Each deck is specially ordered just for you and mailed directly from the printer. You should receive it in 3-4 weeks although probably sooner.
NOTES -- PLEASE READ:
First, I accept NO CANCELLATIONS or refunds because each deck is specially ordered for you; once the order is sent to the printer, I cannot cancel it and so it will be delivered to you. If more than one deck is ordered, there is reduced shipping for the additional decks.
This is a facsimile reproduction or a restored reproduction of actual cards or period art (the Papus and 1926 Wirth decks). There is no accompanying instruction booklet but may or may not contain instructions or information on additional cards. The card stock is made to be shuffled and used and, as such, may be a disappointment to "collectors" but will delight aficionados who use and appreciate the art of antique decks. Since each deck is made to order please be patient. Your deck will be ordered immediately but may take up to 3 to 4 weeks to arrive, internationally 3-7 weeks.
SHIPPING NOTE for INTERNATIONAL BUYERS.
My printer is now collecting VAT for EU countries so I have adjusted the shipping charges to reflect that. price increase. Sorry.
There are some locations where I will not ship via regular mail including Mexico and Brazil because regular has gone missing. If you are from the countries with known unreliable postal systems, sorry, I will return your payments. If you are serious about wanting the decks we can make other arrangements,
