Selection of decks of cards
The Imperial Card Factory started production of playing cards “Glazatnye” in the early sixties of the 19th century, when it was decided to change the design of the cards (the cards produced before that had a very cheap kind of appearance). A more precise date is not known, since all the archives of the Imperial Card Factory burned down as a result of one of the German bombings, during the Siege of Leningrad. For the same reason, it is not possible to establish the Last Name of the author of the thumbnails of the deck images. Or rather - decks. Under the brand "Glazatnye" the Imperial Card Factory produced two decks of playing cards at the same time. They differed in the style of the images: on one of the decks they were made in an exaggerated manner close to the popular prone tradition, on the other - the graphics were more realistic. Some minor differences could also be found in the colors of the costumes, accessories of toilets and the angles of the figures. What caused this difference? Most likely, the grade and, as a result, the cost of decks. Playing cards with more advanced graphics, apparently, were intended for card comfort of the wealthy segments of the population, simpler images - for gamblers with lower social status. However, this is only a version.
