Introducing the third release in the breathtaking Chao Playing Cards Series, a special collection from Make Playing Cards commemorating many of the most iconic and noteworthy characters from China’s long and storied history.
This LIMITED EDITION version has been reimagined in an astonishing jade green color. In Chinese culture, jade is an imperial gem stone that possesses both significant monetary and sentimental value. With only 2,500 decks available, this color is perfectly suited for this rare deck of cards.
As the color green is also often associated with “money”, all of the Chinese Emperors, Empresses and Generals depicted on the court cards are ones that had substantial power and wealth. Each character has their own distinct traits, clothing and accessories that have been crafted with an intricate detailing that allows them to exude their own unique personality.
Every suit in Chao Playing Cards (Jade Green) reflects a different dynasty (Han, Tan, Ming and Qing). The Jokers also have 2 prominent Chinese historical figures and a Chinese dragon has been added to the Ace of Spades to highlight the imperial power and strength this deck of cards possesses.
Chao Playing Cards (Jade Green) offer unrivaled handling and performance for any card trick or card game thanks to an extraordinary blend of M32 linen air stock and a highly-regarded BETA finish.
