    Dwight Eisenhower Wardman Park Hotel Silver Tray During World War II, General and Mrs. Eisenhower maintained an apartment at the Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C. This is where Mamie spent her days waiting for the General to return during the long days of the war. Following the war and after the election of Ike as President, the Eisenhowers brought this attractive tray to the White House. Measuring approximately 6 1/2" x 12", it has the hotel crest marked on the inside rim. "D. D. E." and five stars are engraved in the center of the tray. White House maid Lillian Rogers Parks documented the provenance of the tray with a White House engraved and signed card which will accompany the tray.
