The top lip reads: "Franklin D. Roosevelt President of the United States of America Inaugurated March 4, 1933". The base reads: "Asst. Sec. of Navy 1913-1920 Gov. of New York State 1929-1933". The bottom of the base reads: "Vernay Presidential Glass 98 Made in England". Excellent condition and quite scarce.
