Warren G. Harding’s Vase

05 Sep

Stunning pitcher-style vase owned by the Hardings and displayed in the White House. Vase measures an imposing 11″ tall, with two painted floral panels on the sides, and the remainder of the vase being covered in an eye-catching raised relief design. Accompanied by a 1987 handwritten letter of provenance, on a White House card, 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 flower vase (11 inch) was owned by the Hardings. They gave it to my mother who was the first maid of the White House.” Also included is an important color photo of Parks posing with the vase many years ago. In fine condition. A superb porcelain example direct from the Harding White House.
