UNUSED MENU CARD FROM ONE OF KAISER WILHELM II’s HUNTING LODGES/RURAL CASTLES

SKU: 20-325

$150.00

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. Kaiser Wilhelm greatly enjoyed hunting, as did most German royals and nobles. Since he also liked comfort, he had hunting lodges and even small schlosses in which to stay while on a hunt. This menu card from one such residence, measuring 6″ x 9 ½,” features hunting motifs. The first depicts a number of wild beasts in front of a hunting estate’s main gate. Another hunting scene features hunting dogs and a huntsman with a horn at the card’s bottom. A Hohenzollern Eagle on a shield with a Hohenzollern Crown above it appears in the upper left corner.
