    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.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
