I have a deck of tarot cards that I'm trying to date and gain general information about. It's a 1JJ swiss deck in an italian florentine style wooden box thats painted gold. I have seen several similar boxes but noone seems to have any information on when they were in production. The information on the deck that I have says Fabrique De Cartes J.Muller &cie. on the emporer and Fabrique De Cartes A Shaffhouse on the 2 of coins. I have seen several similar boxes with different card faces painted on the sides of the box. I know that the company J Muller became AG Muller in the early 60's and then became part of Cartamundi in the 90's. Cartamundi has not responded to any inquiries about this. Any information or resources would be appreciated.

I'd try contacting Konigsfurt/Urania

Cartamundi seem to be just printers now.
