A Lovely and Rare Antique French Silver Set Of Four Louis XVI Style Menu Holders by one of our favourite Master Silversmiths Léon LAPAR.
These four Menus holders show a charming Cherub flying over a centre medallion while holding a garland of fruits and flowers.
The Medallion holds an EMG Monogram.
They menus holders rest on four little geometric scrolls which double up as stands.
Made entirely out of silver they have slots in the back which allows sliding the menus.
These lovely menu holders will be perfect for a final touch on a formal dinner or during the holiday season.
