    Description

    Theodore Roosevelt: Humorous Large Coffee Mug. 3.5" tall (4" across) soft paste mug with light brown transfer portrait of TR, inscribed "I am not greedy but I like a lot." A similar piece is known for Taft, but we've seen never the TR before. Made by Three Crown China Company of Germany. It does have a hairline around the bottom starting across TR's neck and around to his right shoulder. Still presents very nicely. From the Collection of the Late Edward C. Gillette.
