Framed Jokers for my Kids

Like many parents, I think a lot about my kids and what I can give them. What will be legacy to them?  Unlike many parents, I have, while still living, passed some jokers onto the next generation.  Tax free!

One of my daughters is extremely skeptical about my collecting of jokers. Generally, she wants no part of it. She's practically antagonistic towards.  So she got just four jokers.  Very nice classic ones in a sort of Middle Eastern enabled frame.

My other daughter is sort of interested in the collection. She has at times sat with me and watched me sort and organize them. Once she helped.  She got 8 jokers also in the same enameled frame.

To my son who is generally enthusiastic about my joker collection to the point of helping me organize them, I have given a frame with 19 different jokers. In retrospect, I wish I had used non-reflective glass. However, I'm quite pleased with my selections of jokers. I love almost all of them except the one in the bottom left and the one on the right side, middle level. My other least favorite is in the top row, one from the left corner, juggling. 

All the others are classic choices reflecting well on my good taste and the history of jokers. Don't you agree? Can you name the manufacturers of each of these jokers?
