\DECK-er-us\ | adjective

The first link appears to be some kind of kennel club, but it’s in another language and I couldn’t tell you more about it.

The first picture comes from a page of Regency illustrations.

It’s titled “A Milling Match Between Decks” and it’s by W. Elmes (July 13th 1812) According to the site owner, it’s “a print that will make you wish you lived in the Regency, when things were decorous and elegant!” Yeah, not so much.
