Description  

President and Mrs. Harding’s personally-owned and -used crystal wine glass. Delicate stem glass is made by the Sinclair Glass Company, measures 5″ tall and is beautifully hand-engraved, “WGH” on one side. Accompanied by a detailed 1982 letter of provenance on White House letterhead, by 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. Letter reads, in part: “The fine Wine Glass engraved W.G.H. was owned and used by President Warren G. Harding and the First Lady, Florence Harding in the White House as well as their home in Marion, Ohio. When Mrs. Harding left the White House upon the sudden death of President Harding she gave it to my Mama, Maggie Rogers, soon to be First Maid of the White House…Other examples of this lovely crystal are in the Harding Home and Museum in Marion, Georgia.” In splendid condition, with an inventory label and collector’s felt tip notation on underside of base. An illustrious quality example for the most discriminating of collectors.
