Newport, RI: Tiffany & Co., 1907.
Manuscript and printed menu, 14x19 cm. New Year's eve menu for a celebration at the famous Sandy Point Stables (here Farm), part of the Vanderbilt estate just outside of Newport in Portsmouth. The Stables were home to Reginald C. Vanderbilt's Hackney breeding operation. Sandy Point Stables remains, recently restored. The menu features Caviar sur Toast, Consommé, Cassolettes de Cabilland, Capons au cresson and more. The recto of the menu shows some adhesion from where the menu must have been pasted into an album, some light soiling and one corner bumped.
