Description
 
The Sibilla Originale Del 1890 is a reproduction of a 52 card Sibilla fortune-telling playing card deck originally printed by the cardmaker L. Lamperti of Milan in 1890. Published by Il Meneghello in a numbered limited edition of 1500 decks, in 1999. The deck used for these scans was #366 but the number will vary on the new, sealed deck you receive.

The original illustrations were very fine-lined, then overprinted with stencil coloring, which ranges from primary to pastel to earth tones. 52 cards are divided into playing card suits of 13 cards each, with characters or scenes on each, and an Italian title below the illustration. Arabic numbers and a playing card symbol are shown in each of the top corners of the illustration. Court figures are numbered 11, 12 & 13, but have varying titles. 1 hand-numbered title card is included. Card finish is high gloss or plastic laminate, with reversible card backs.

The 32 page Italian instruction booklet has small black & white illustrations of every card next to their divinatory meanings, which are divided into 4 categories. A 5 card spread method is included.

NOTE: Scans & photos showing loose cards were taken from an opened, duplicate deck. You will receive a new, un-opened deck. Numbered card above shown for reference, this deck edition number is unknown.
