LOTERIA IS A MEXICAN GAME OF CHANCE THAT DATES AS FAR BACK AS THE 15TH CENTURY. Actual vintage cards are highly collectible, but this framed set of three is pretty spectacular. This set dates to around 1900, and what I like here is the authenticity of the framed set. These cards, representing exotic places and things, were most likely framed for the simple visual beauty they brought to a home. These were found via 1stdibs.
