Vilvoorde: Jean Eygelshoven, 1875. A portfolio of original artwork and designs for the foundation of the Reunion Nautique sailing club in Vilvoorde, just north of Bruxelles. Founded in 1875 as a sailing club, the club is still going today. The portfolio is composed of a title, and 28 sheets of Bruxelles Kahn Freres art paper with original sketches, designs and watercolour logo's and cartoons. Eygelshoven seemed to be working on club logo's, designs for the restaurant menu etc. etc. Most of the sheets are signed in pencil by the artist. A beautiful bundle of period design. The whole is held in a rather tatty paper covered board folder. Cloth spine with title in ink to this. 250 by 185mm (9¾ by 7¼ inches).
