Antlia Silver Gilt Edged Playing Cards
Gilt-edged cards are the ultimate in luxury. Antlia has a delicate silver floral design on a deep red and navy blue background with a delicate silver floral design. More importantly, what makes these cards uniquely special is their silver gilt edges, a modern and clean-looking twist on the classic edge gilding. With it’s beautiful silver design printed in a reflective silver ink, it’s not difficult to see why these cards are so popular. The treat doesn’t end there though. Unwrap a pack and shuffle it, and you will discover the pleasure of using a premium quality pack of cards.
The Antlia Silver Gilt Edged Playing Cards are bridge-size making them suitable for use in playing card holders. They have standard 4-index faces (a pip in every corner) making them suitable for both left- and right-handed players. Furthermore, the packs of cards are in cellophane wrapping, with a tear-strip for ease of opening.
Edge gilding is an ancient book binding technique, which serves a dual purpose. Firstly, it protects the edges of the pages from moisture and dust, and makes the pages more durable and harder-wearing. Secondly, it looks fantastic! The same is true of gilt edged playing cards; the highly mirrored surface looks incredible, plus the extra layer around the edge of each card helps to protect the pack from wear and tear.
The black and silver box colours complement this luxury twin pack perfectly, making this a really stylish set for your bridge table.
