I have been doing some research into playing card history/evolution and I see that the "German" suits are Bells, Acorns, Hearts, and Leaves. Are those suits used for standard 52-card decks? Or only for decks with fewer cards (Skat decks, etc.) ?
I'm not looking for a Tarrock/Tarok deck -- with a tarot/trump suit -- but a standard/modern deck.
I had a quick look at the German version of that big online retailer and the only German-suited decks I saw had fewer than 52 cards.

Ideally, I'd like to find a "standard" deck with German (or Swiss) suits, and the court cards B, D, and K (rather than J, Q, and K).
If that's not too much to ask -- are there modern European decks with four court cards in each suit (56-card decks) ?
