Cod. Sal. VIII, 16: Cod. Sal. VIII, 16 Processionale (Frankreich / Burgund, 16. Jh.)

From a set of playing cards, ca. 1470–1485, South Netherlandish -- The Cloisters set of fifty-two cards constitutes the only known complete deck of illuminated ordinary playing cards from the 15th century. There are four suits, each consisting of a king, a queen, a knave, and ten pip cards. The suit symbols, based on equipment associated with the hunt, are hunting horns, dog collars, hound tethers, and game nooses. The figures appear to be based on Franco-Flemish models.
