“Black Peter” — a sort of Eastern European version of “Old Maid” — reappears in an undated deck from Piatnik, in Vienna. This delicate rendering of an accordion and cat duet is particularly nice. For some reason, two Black Peters are included, which seems to belie the point of the game. Do the players choose boy or girl at the outset? Are there two losers?
