Deck: Swiss Classic Marseilles
Description: c.1890-1900 Swiss Scaffhouse tarot deck in the Marseilles style by J. Mueller, complete with 78/78 cards. Two of Coins with "Fabrique de Cartes a Schaffhouse."
Monogram "JR" inscription on 4 of Coins, suggesting these were designed after cards first manufactured by Jean Henri Rochias c.1816 or Jacques Rochias c.1782.
The deck most closely resembles the c.1840-70 deck developed by Gassmann.
These cards were popularized by Stuart Kaplan as the "Classic Swiss Tarot" when U.S. Games issued a reprint of the cards in the 1970s, attributing the deck's origins to Claude Burdel.
