Antique dinner menu card, dinner party table menu, original guests' menu place card early 1900's, French menu card, French paper ephemera
This is something new to my shop that I am very pleased to offer..
....an antique dinner menu! Such cards might have been placed on the table at each dinner party guest's place so that they would know what the dinner menu was. Some of these lovely old cards that I have for offer have the name of the guest written on the reverse side of the menu, so they were also used as place setting cards. These menus might also have been used at elite restaurants and handed to the guests so they would know what was served that evening. What treasures these beautiful old cards are. They are not digital copies, but original late 1800's and early 1900's menus, most have been hand written, which I think is just marvelous and the designs on them are just too pretty for words!
This card is dated to 1914, is written in French, and has a pretty embossed golden pattern surrounding a beautiful country scene of period dressed guests at a gathering on the lake. The gold embossing reflects the light when the menu is turned in one's hands.
The card is in very good vintage condition with normal age appropriate marks.
It measures approximately 7-1/2 inches x 3-1/2 inches.
(19 cm x 9 cm).
