The Moorish deck has been dated to around 1414 to 1495. The original playing cards were printed with thick black lines, on white paper. It is theorized that these cards are related to Arabic cards and carry the number cards of one to ten plus three court cards for a total of 52 playing cards. These cards also have European influences, especially from Spain and Italy. You can tell this by the flowers found in the cards.

Medieval playing cards were all sorts of sizes and shapes. They did not have any standardization. Some playing cards were actually circular cards. Deck sizes range from three and a half inches tall to five and seven eighths tall, and two and three quarter of an inch wide.

Unlike, modern day playing cards, playing cards in the middle ages were not coated like modern day playing cards, and they were block printed on paste board. Paste board was four to six sheets of paper glued together.

The cards in this deck are poker sized playing cards 3.5 x 2.5 inches. The playing cards come with a clear plastic case. There are 52 cards in the deck. Please note there are NO jokers in the deck as medieval playing cards never had jokers. Jokers are a later addition to the deck.
