The 2nd Annual Dinner of the Morning Newspaper Bowling League at Mouquin's, 1900.

"At the turn of the Century, Henri and Jeanne Louise Mouquin were suffering from a marital scandal that had erupted while they were living on a chicken farm in Nanuet, New York, in November of 1900. The farm supplied fresh eggs and poultry to the family restaurant business in New York City.

Henri's father (also named Henri) had immigrated to New York from Switzerland in 1854, and opened a successful French Restaurant in 1857. The restaurant had prospered, bolstered by the largest wine importing business in the country, and a second Mouquin restaurant, known as Mouquin's Uptown, was opened at the height of the Gilded Age in 1898. Henri and his brother Louis managed the second restaurant for their father in what had been the old Knickerbockers Club on Sixth Avenue and 28th St.

[It] is credited with introducing onion soup and bouillabaisse to New Yorkers."
  • Matting & Framing Options

    You can customize your print's presentation from a wide selection of frames and mats: modern or classic - all timeless. See the options here.

    Our most popular style is Modern Black - Thin frame, coupled a White Mat with Black Core. The Modern White frames will match any style and are perfect for gifts. Looking for something with more bang? The gold and silver frames may be what you want. See examples here.

    Mats are not offered with Gallery frames at the moment (but look great without them!).

  • Frame Sizes

    All frames are custom cut and sized to match the dimensions of the image. Your final, framed print might not exactly match the dimensions listed in the Frame Size dropdown menu. 

    The maximum dimensions of each frame size are:

    • Keepsake: Up to 5" x 7"
    • Accent: Up to 9" x 12" 
    • Spotlight: Up to 16" x 20"
    • Centerpiece: Up to 34" x 36"
    • Gallery: Up to 32" x 40"

    Because of the original pixel size of the scans, not all prints are available in all sizes.

  • Shipping & Delivery

    Shipping is always free!

    Prints will be scanned at the archives, and retouched by our artists to make them pixel-perfect. They will then be reprinted, trimmed, matted and framed to fit their custom sizes.

    You should expect the final, framed print in 4-6 weeks. Because each print is custom researched, retouched, and framed, all sales are final.
