horizontal lines


Hello all,

a question about the horizontal single or double lines at the bottom of some cards.
There are those lines on some of the cards which divide the card somehow into 2 parts and it looks like a stage in the front and a kind of wall-picture in the background.
it's the:
wands: 4, 9, 10
coins: 2, 5, 6, 8
cups: page, 2, 5, 8, 10
swords: 2, 5, 7
On some are persons on some not.

Is there anything about it? Especially in the wands 9 or cups 2/10 it looks very theater-stage like...

I know PCS worked with theaters also but why do only some of the cards have such a stage? It's probably totally meaningless, but anyway I wanted to ask.
Thanks

These are generally known as "stage cards," and they've actually been discussed extensively, so don't think it's meaningless! Here are some threads:

So thanks!
