1885 Victorian table lavishly spread for dinner a la Ruse with a plateau of mirrors and a fountain with menu suggestions for the fruit course.

Madame, Your Dinner Is Served.

For this evening's supper; it's Vegetable Beef Soup, Roast Chicken Breast, Boiled Potatoes, Scalloped Veal, Salad, Curried Eggs, Bread and Butter, Veal Cutlets and Cold Ham with assorted fruits and plenty of different wines between each course.
Oh... and Chef certainly hopes you saved room for desert; he's made a nice Lemon Custard AND a Jam Tart just for you.

(Pssssst... I really do think someone in the kitchen is trying to kill you, Sweetie.) *Gulp* Now think about choking down all that stuff while you're all laced up nice and tight in a corset.

This gorgeous original Victorian lithograph from 1885 (long before the American Medical Association was around to condemn such heart-stopping menu plans) is from my very own collection of beautiful and weird Victorian prints and illustrations from the late 1800s.

'Victorian Table Setting With Mirrors and Fountain' measures 8." x 10.25." It's in smooth condition; aged to a lovely soft and even light tanning with the usual spots one finds on paper that's 126 years old. It's printed on heavy paper and is blank on the reverse side, It comes with six pages of related text concerning dinner party etiquette, proper table settings, wine selection, how to dress for such occasions, how to address invitations, how to seat guests at the table, duties of the host and hostess, proper table manners, the importance of punctuality and tons of other complicated rules of correct Victorian behavior.

Matted and framed and displayed as a grouping, these wonderful antique art prints are simply spectacular. (Please note that the framed examples in the last photo are just to show how this might look when it's framed. This print will come unframed..)

I'll send this fine old beauty to you by way of the USPS packaged flat and protected in a rigid mailer.
