Probably the most incredible deck we have in stock.
This amazing deck that combines cabalistic symbolism with the major arcana of the tarot was discovered by us at the Antiquariato Rotondi in Rome in 2020. Since then we have tried to find descriptions of this deck but it is such a rare gem that we unable to gather information beyond the artwork in our hands.
The handmade box is a mixed media art piece combining heavy card stock, various types of paper, wood, varnish, a wax seal, copper nails, and Meneghello sticker and the wooden handle for the drawer.
Each of the 22 arcana is heavy card wrapped in black paper with the artwork glued on top of the black paper.
A cellophane wrapped card of authenticity bears an additional wax seal and the following handwritten words:
Alfabeto Ebraico in 22 arcani di Osvaldo Menegazzi in 36 es. numerati 7/36 Ed. "Il Meneghello" Milano 2010

From what we can gather, this rare treasure is no longer for sale in the store in Milano, nor available anywhere online. If you do find a copy beyond this one or know more about this unique deck than we do, please let us know!
