UNUSED MENU CARD FROM KAISER WILHELM II’s EXILE AT HAUS DOORN – THE NETHERLANDS

SKU: 20-326

$125.00

Any time Kaiser Wilhelm II entertained, it was customary to have a menu card at each place setting so that the guest could view the evening’s bill-of-fare. This particular menu card was from the time that he resided at Haus Doorn. [I have been told the Dutch government has closed Haus Doorn to the public. To the Dutch government, I say “SHAME!” This short-sighted view robs the public of viewing artifacts from a historic leader a highly-significant time]. The menu card was never used. It measures 6″ x 9 ½.” It features a photograph of the Kaiser at the top. Judging from his age shown in the photograph, I would say the menu card dates from the 1930’s. It is a rare and unusual find.
