Raleigh DeGeer Amyx Collection


White House China

The Raleigh DeGeer Amyx Collection houses what is perhaps the finest collection of official White House china in private hands, a selection of which is presented here. Official White House china is among the most coveted and desirable of presidential relics, as it is both visually appealing and represents the dining table of the president of the United States. The demand for presidential china far exceeds the supply, with the general rarity increased because fewer than half of all presidents have ordered new porcelain service sets. Any sort of item associated with America's Founding Fathers is of the highest collectibility, and early exemplars of their china are exceedingly rare, with time and fragility having taken their toll. Fortunately, the Raleigh DeGeer Amyx Collection has made available two remarkable pieces from these forefathers, with Thomas Jefferson and James Madison represented within this extraordinary offering of presidential china. As a whole, however, this collection covers a broad spectrum of American history—following these early patriots are examples from Benjamin Harrison, Woodrow Wilson, Harry S. Truman, and Bill Clinton. Pieces from the Amyx Collection have been featured in magazines and reference guides, and the assortment here offered presents a wonderful opportunity for historians and collectors alike.
