Description
This is the Ace of Hearts playing card from a pack manufactured by Charles Goodall (1785-1851) of Camden, London. Charles Goodall was in business for over 100 years, from 1820 to 1929.

This original deck was produced in about 1895, and is one of a small and haphazard series of 'Historic Playing Cards'. The court cards feature four different historic British royal dynasties, as follows:

Spades: Hanoverian (1714–1901), last representative Queen Victoria.

Hearts: Stuart (1371–1714), last representative Queen Anne. (Originated in Scotland.)

Diamonds: Tudor (1485–1603), last representative Queen Elizabeth I.

Clubs: Plantagenet (1126–1485), last representative Richard III.

All aces and court cards from this deck are available here. Below are some more antique playing cards, including some from Bernhard Dondorf's rare 1895 'Shakespeare' deck:
