Here is some beautiful art that will make you hungry. Langouste à la Parisienne (lobster). Gâteaux moka (coffee cakes). Potage à la Reine (Queen's Soup). And even ... 'haricots a l'anglaise' (English beans, or what we call baked beans). The smaller menu boasts lovely calligraphy, an embossed gold "Menu" and a romantic image of a gentleman kissing the hand of a young woman with a huge fan. This menu is dated Aug. 10, '92 (1892!) and measures about 5.75 by 3.75 inches. The larger menu is about 4.5 by 6.5 inches. It is not as old, but shows more wear with the creased corner at the bottom right. It is dated Oct. 9, 1920. Printed by K.F. & Z of Paris, there is a trio of monochrome illustrations in a light brown. I have included a variety of photos and scans in different light. The exact colors are difficult to capture but I think the second photo is most accurate. I feel confident in saying that once in hand, you'll love these ephemeral beauties.
