Description  

The Eisenhowers’ personally-owned and -used beautiful white china sugar bowl, measuring 3.25″ tall with a diameter of 4″ at the base, it is painted with lovely pink and green floral designs and gold accents on the edges and handles. The top cover is decorated to match. On the bottom of the bowl and underneath the cover are maker and distributor’s stamps reading, “Theodore Haviland, Limoges, France” and “Manufactured, Dulin & Martin Co., Washington, DC.” Included is a detailed letter of provenance on White House letterhead from well-known best selling author Lillian Rogers Parks, who was a housekeeper and seamstress at the White House for over 30 years, from Hoover through Eisenhower. In part: “The sugar bowl belonged to President Dwight D. Eisenhower and First Lady Mamie Eisenhower. They used it on occasion when I worked for them. Mrs. Eisenhower gave it to me shortly before I left the White House in 1961. The sugar bowl is of fine Haviland China…The design is a delicate floral pattern in pinks, green and gold…This personal item once belonging to the President and Mamie Eisenhower should be preserved for future generations.” Condition is extra fine.
