President and Mrs. Harding’s personally-owned and -used cordial glass. Diminutive glass, of the highest crystal quality, is made by the Central Glass Works of Wheeling, West Virginia, measures 4.75″ tall, with a stunning gold-encrusted pattern marked “H,” 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 lovely Cordial Glass was owned and used by President Warren Harding and the First Lady, Florence Kling Harding. It was used in the White House as well as their home in Marion, Ohio…This is a piece from the Harding family service. Other examples may be found in the Harding Home and Museum in Marion, Ohio.” In splendid condition, with an inventory label and collector’s felt tip notation on underside of base. An elite collector of quality presidential crystal will appreciate this offering.
