Trailer Trad Collecting: French Cuisine Pickin'

The new year brought a couple of good picking opportunities lately. Lil' Bean and I scoured the estate sales this past weekend and we spotted some cool items. Among those were these nice, large frameable menus from Paris in the 1950's. These really evoke the golden era of travel and French cuisine. It's cool to think that these menus were hand lettered in 1954, ten years after that city's liberation!

The reverse features charming (if a little unusual) etching prints by Revon. These are pretty collectible and would look great framed in a kitchen. We were glad to pick them up reasonably.
Speaking of French cooking, My daughter has informed me that I have enough Le Crueset. She's wrong. -Picked up this little beauty in forest green recently....
