Description  

Three scarce personally-owned items of Ellen Wilson, all presented to former White House ‘first maid’ Maggie Rogers. Items are: an attractive silver diamond-shaped brooch, with a blue stone (likely cornelian) set inside a delicate filigree pattern; a pair of champagne beige doeskin evening gloves, marked inside “Lavable,” each with three buttons; and an off-white pair of doeskin gloves. All three items are accompanied by letters of authenticity, on White House stationery, from Maggie Roger’s daughter Lillian Rogers Parks, who was a best selling author as well as housekeeper and seamstress at the White House for over 30 years, from President Hoover through President Eisenhower. In fine condition, with expected light wear. Personal items belonging to the first Mrs. Wilson are virtually nonexistent.
