Product description

Fenner Taper-Lock Bushes and Pulleys - vintage unopened pack of advertising playing cards
 
A nice example of a genuine vintage promotional pack of Waddingtons standard-size playing cards, unopened and sealed with original tax wrapper, advertising "Fenner Taper-Lock Bushes and Pulleys". The original box has a sample card glued to one side, the other side being printed "With the compliments of / J. H. Fenner & Co. Ltd. / Hull, Yorkshire"; the cards themselves remain sealed in the original unopened Waddingtons tax wrapper (which indicates a date of pre-1960, since the Excise duty on playing cards was repealed in that year).
 
Although the box and tax wrapper show some signs of age (see condition description below), they remain displayable, whilst the cards themselves, being unopened, are presumably in very good condition. As such, they would make an interesting addition to a collection of vintage playing cards or engineering advertising memorabilia.
