Collection of 15 cocktail glasses prepared for Vice President Gerald Ford. Collection consists of: seven highball glasses, each approximately 5.5″ high, each with an ‘old style’ gold vice presidential seal and hand-etched “Gerald R. Ford”; and eight rocks glasses, each approximately 3″ tall, also with the ‘old style’ gold vice presidential seal, and hand etched “G. R. F.” Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Raleigh DeGeer Amyx, which reads, in part: “This assortment of glasses…came to my collection from a long-time White House employee, Wilma H. Holness, whose career at the White House spanned from 1942–1974…According to Mrs. Holness, upon the resignation of President Nixon, the White House staff went into overdrive in order to quickly move out the Nixon’s [sic], and move in the new First Family. It was in this move that these personalized etched glasses were eliminated except for the ones kept by the Fords.” In fine condition.
