Art Deco Bridge Tally Cards Popular Among Collectors And Crafters
The graphics on 1920s-1930s Bridge Tally cards are so beautiful that these fabulous cards used to keep score in Bridge games with multiple players are in demand. While you will find that these cards were made with numerous themes and patterns, die cut Art Deco versions with images of "ladies", "Flappers", "Bonnet girls", "brides" or "gentlemen" are very desirable. Other themes are "dogs", "florals", "parties", "the Orient", holidays and more. etc. Colorfully, stylish and designed with elements of the Art Deco period Bridge tally cards are mini artworks.
When buying paper collectibles you are evaluating whether the graphics are bright and clear. Has the paper item been used? Are there tears or bends? Is there any writing on the face of the card? And last, is the card an original? In the age of digital reproductions, the market is flooded with copies.
