This publisher was originally the House of Daveluy, printer of the royal court of Belgium and highly regarded for its special printing techniques. The Daveluy Lenormand was the first Belgian Lenormand deck published, circa 1850, and upon the death of its founder was acquired by Geûens-Willaert which subsequently published its own version of the Daveluy Lenormand.

In this later version of the Daveluy cards the images were re-drawn and very closely resemble the original version but there are several small details that distinguish this one from Caitlin Matthews' original Daveluy deck.

Most notably, in this deck you will find that not only are the verses in Dutch rather than French, the Ship flies 3 Belgian flags from its masts, the Letter shows the new publisher's name, and the signpost on the Roads card the points to Bruges and Ghent. The elegant court inserts are from a deck of Daveluy's own playing cards published in the mid-1800s.

This deck is poker size and is printed on premium card stock that feels wonderful in hand.

Card size: 2-1/2" x 3-1/2"

SHIPPING NOTE -- PLEASE READ.

To keep down the shipping costs, I send the cards via regular mail. If you want upgraded service, contact me I can let you know what the additional charge will be. If the postal system in your country is questionable, you may want to invest in registered mail which is signed for each time it passes through someone's hands and almost guaranteed that your package will arrive safely.

I have had only 2 packages go missing, and I refunded the purchase price including shipping. Since it's not my fault when a package goes missing I WILL NOT take responsibility anymore, but I also don't want to raise shipping for everyone. The 2 places where the packages went missing were India and Brazil. UPDATE: I just had one go missing in Ukraine.
