Description  

Elegant sheer beige stole of the highest quality, handmade by Grace Coolidge herself, lined with turquoise chiffon. The stole, measuring 7´ 4″ long and 7″ wide, tapers into beautiful gray tassels. Includes a detailed letter of provenance on White House letterhead from 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 part: “This lovely…stole was handmade by Grace Coolidge…The First Lady did fine work. She gave this piece to my Mama, Maggie Rogers, First Maid of the White House, just before Herbert Hoover was elected President in 1928. My Mama and Mrs. Coolidge did a lot of sewing together. Mrs. Coolidge loved to sew on the sun porch of the third floor.” Condition is extra fine.
