Golden Tarot Of The Renaissance Deck
*There is only one of these decks and it is gently pre-owned.* This tarot deck is part of a collection of pre-owned magical items that I am selling here on the site. Please read the description and view the photos for specifics about the condition. Note that all sales on this site are final.
The ‘Golden Tarot of the Renaissance’ is a 78-card deck and the box and instruction booklet are included.
Style: This is a gorgeous deck, especially good for reading at Ren Faires. The images are traditional 15th century artwork highlighted with gold foil. The illustrations used for this deck are not like traditional Rider-Waite imagery. Therefore, I would not suggest this deck for beginning readers. Note that the traditional Renaissance artwork has heavy religious undertones, can be a bit dark in nature (skeletons), and depicts some characters as nude.
Cards are traditional tarot size. (I didn’t open it to check the card stock, but I’ve always been happy with LS decks.) Deck was published by Lo Scarabeo.
Condition: Outer package (box) has been opened. Cards and booklet are still shrink-wrapped (unopened). All cards and booklet are included. Outer box is nearly new, with very light scuffing on several corners. Cards are traditional tarot card size.
Description from Amazon:
Golden Tarot of the Renaissance: Estensi Tarot (English and Spanish Edition)
Once known as the Charles VI or Gringonneur Tarot, this historic masterpiece has been restored, completed, and renamed to reflect its true history. This late 15th century deck was made in Ferrara for the Estes family. The Minor Arcana, added by Dworkin, were inspired by frescos in Schifanoia Palazzo, owned by the Estes family. These images are alive with movement and wit and are highlighted with gold foil.
The companion booklets for most Lo Scarabeo decks are in five languages: English, Spanish, French, Italian, and German.
Deck is currently priced at $24.95 new from Amazon and $20.85 used.
