Gereserveerd!

Gereserveerd!
Anyone who views this photo must have done so because of curiosity.

While visiting my brother in White Plains, New York, I noticed this "gereserveerd" stand hanging in the kitchen. Needless to say it's Dutch/ Nederlands for the word "reserved".

Apparently when my brother finished his research at Erasmus University in Rotterdam. his Dutch and international colleagues organized a farewell party for him at a local restaurant. He took the "gereserveerd" stand as a souvenir. I hope I'm not getting him into trouble!

From reading Dutch the odd times (not that I know Dutch, of course), I've noticed that in the Dutch language, often "ge-" is added before and "-d" after a verb to change the tense to something like the past participle tense in English. Perhaps my Dutch friends would provide some more examples?
