This is a combination entertainment program and menu honoring Kaiser Wilhelm II’s birthday on 27 January 1894 at a restaurant in Davos, Switzerland. The menu measures 4 ¼” x 7 ¼” unopened, and 7 ¼” x 8 ¾” opened, the latter act revealing it consists of four pages. The cover announces the Bill-of-Fare for the day. The event was held at the Kurhaus Davos-Platz in central Switzerland. The cover has a floral theme with its binding in Germany’s national colors: red, black, and white. [The Kaiser later visited Davos in 1913. This menu is NOT from that occasion].
When opened, the menu reveals the evening’s food on the left and its beverages on the right. The back cover lists the evening’s entertainment, which included musical selections from Weber, Wagner and Strauß. The menu program has been folded, but remains in pretty good condition at more than one-hundred-twenty years of age.
