IMPROVED PATENT PLAYING CARDS.

CHARLES GOODALL And SON respectfully solicit the patronage of the Trade for their popular and much admired Playing Cards. The NEW PATTERNS, from designs by the first Artists, Sporting, Floral, and Gold Backed, are now ready. Specimens, with prices, will be sent to any part of the Kingdom on application.

C. G. and Son have prepared an elegant Glass Case to exhibit their Playing Cards, and thus materially assist the sale. It ia charged at the mere cost of the materials and labour, and is sent out with 18 Packs, assorted, of the best Sporting, Floral, and Gold Back Enamelled Moguls at £2. 15s.— Size, 19 by 16$.

N.B.—In order to encourage the introduction of their Cards amongst the Country Trade, C. G. and Son will make up an assorted sample dozen, of the best quality, containing three different patterns of Sporting designs, six of the Floral, and three of the Gold Backed; thus enabling local Stationers to lay before their customers the same variety of splendid patterns as can be done by those in the largest cities.

*#* Orders to be accompanied by a Post Office Order, and instructions as to the mode of conveyance.

"On the improved patent Playing Cards furnished from Goodall and Son's well-known Manufactory at Camden Town, a cleverly designed Military pattern on the back of each, has, with admirable taste, superseded the unassuming stars and crosses, which for long have passed current as ornamental. The original drawing was designed by an Officer in a highly-distinguished Cavalry Regiment, and the excellent effect which the Messrs. Goodall's ingenuity has produced in multiplying the idea on the 'Great Mogul,' merits much praise. No member of a Military Club, or Regimental Mess, when seated at a quiet game of Whiat, should deal with any other than Goodall's new Military Pattern."—Royal Military Magazine. MANUFACTORY, CAMDEN TOWN, LONDON.
