19th Century playing cards


In the process of collecting mother-of-pearl counters and gaming boxes, I have acquired several packs of old cards of which seven are illustrated here. I find these cards really intriguing but I do not know very much about them at all. I have arranged them roughly in what i consider to be date order but I could be wrong. The central card on the bottom row of each picture shows the reverse. If anybody viewing these cards can give me further information I will be pleased to add it to the descriptions.
