While I was making a list of my decks for the members' collections page, I found this majors only deck and don't have a clue of the name or artist who created it. It's 3.5 x 7.5 cm and came in wrapping paper, in a little black pouch.

Thanks for any help you can give!

truelighth ? - you are big on black and white. I am stopping looking - I have seen SO many black and white decks I want, now... Interesting that the magician is apparently black - that should help... Moorish reference perhaps.

Thanks for the reply, gregory. Yes, the black magician could be a Moorish reference. I hadn't thought of that. I'm attaching four more images that intrigue me, one way or another, just in case they ring a bell in anyone's memory.

It looks like it and seems to be wearing a Commedia dell'arte mask, perhaps a Pulcinella mask? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulcinella

Oh yeah - you're right. Maybe there is also a Spanish version of the mask. But that beard....

And there's a mask on one of the dead people on Death, too...

I am afraid I also don't know it. But I will ask Guido Gillabel. Maybe he knows.

Thanks, truelighth, now I really am curious. If neither you nor gregory know, it must be obscure!

Perhaps it's the love-child of two other decks in my collection? Hmm ... I need to start asking some 'delicate' questions ... but which deck(s) do I consult? :?

Thanks, Reece, I appreciate it. I really should be better organised. I buy things and make no note of where I got them, who sold them, how much I paid, etc ... well, the plot continues ... I really look forward to learning the name of this deck and discovering the identity of its creator!

I have a few that I got with no attributions - even from the seller...

But from another forum:

A Death-With-No-Legs!

and then:

Interesting that his spinal cord attaches to the scythe handle!

Now that IS different.... I wonder if Morena Poltronieri... (another museum owner) - not to mention - HEYYY ! the woman I email with in the Madrid tarot museum... Back later.

The Magician looks Moorish.

Wow! Total mystery deck!
I can't believe I never noticed that Death is legless (wonder what he's been drinking?) :f
