    Description

    FDR Engraved Personal Decanter This ornately decorated decanter is engraved, "Franklin Delano Roosevelt," and measures approximately 11 1/2" in height including stopper. A hand engraved floral design decorates this beautiful piece which was brought to the White House by the Roosevelts from Hyde Park in 1933. Lillian Rogers Park, White House maid, dusted and cleaned it often during that time until FDR's passing in 1945 at which time Mrs. Roosevelt presented it to her. This elegant decanter, owned and used by FDR, is accompanied by a detailed full-page White House letter authored by Lillian Rogers Parks over twenty years ago.
