I've discovered that both decks above are of the the type known to have been published by the Kunst-Comptoir publishing company in Berlin as early as 1854. This is the design that the Mertz Lenormand is based on. It's also the original design that was published in New York as Madam Morrow's Fortune Telling Cards - perhaps as early as 1860. In 1886 the Madam Morrow cards were even more beautifully redrawn.
