"When we opened this deck its sheer beauty caught us by surprise. We were delighted by every card—rich Renaissance colors placed against a gold foil background surrounded by a black border. The Visconti family ruled Milan and the surrounding area for over one hundred years from the middle of the fourteenth to the close of the fifteenth century. This deck, designed and hand-painted for the Visconti and Visconti-Sforza family, is the oldest existing deck in the world. That is what makes owning this beautiful reproduction such a treat. Look for Visconti family heraldic images in several of the cards."—Chic and Sandra Tabatha Cicero
