Deck identification?

Postby robert on 26 Oct 2013, 22:14

Dear all,

I received an email asking if I could identify some cards shown in a video on youtube.

I don't know this deck (Lenormand?)

Can anyone help?

Here are two screen captures from the video:

Hello Robert,
this one is for Huck, since the deck is German :)

I tried a few searches for the sentences on the cards and I found "l'oracle tzigane" (French) "sibilla della zingara" (Italian):

I'm in a hurry and I cannot go deeper into this right now. Sorry for being unable to help more.

I confirm that the deck seems to be the German edition of "Oracolo della Zingara", a 52 cards oracle deck (late XIX century). It has been published in different languages, so I am not sure that it was originally Italian. In the Italian version, the cards are labelled as a standard pack of French suited playing cards. The deck is similar (but not identical) to the French "Lenormand" cards and to the German Kipperkarten.
