By the famed French Art Deco artist and illustrator Louis Icart (1880-1950) is this unique Etching with Aquatint originally created in 1926.

The work is entitled 'Banquet avec Champaigne Ayala' and was created in 1926.

In the form of a private dinner menu it features a typical Icart maiden complete with slinky silver gown and large fur stole. She sits at a table with a large ice bucket cooling a bottle of Ayala champagne and this is one of two famous designs Icart created for the Ayala champagne company.

Possibly a wedding or engagement menu it features the names Jean and Francois at the top and Charleroi, le Mars 20 1946 at the bottom. The guest's name..Mr Maurice Lambrechts..appears upper right on the cover.

The menu itself offers Crème Valois and Turbot in a Mousseline sauce for starters and Trout Normand followed by Glace Hymenee, fruits and wines.

One of the wines must have been red as there are a few wine stains on the cover. Most are in the margin but two small stains do intrude on the Etching top left and centre right.

With a strong deep plate mark it is printed on a substantial cream velin.

Signed lower right and printed by Schneider, Paris it measures 5 1/2" x 7 1/4". The Vintage condition is good.

I have the companion Icart Etching listed see NN420.
