    Description

    Wilson and the White House Liberty China President Woodrow Wilson was one of only a select clientele who ordered a set of this Wedgwood china during World War I in order to help raise funds for "war sufferers." The china was a "private order," never advertised and never offered for sale to the public. Others who purchased a set included King George V. Marian Klamkin features the china in the book White House China, plate 25. The design consisted of the American shield in the midst of the Allied flags, with the flags of England and France at the top, the flag of Belgium between them, and a wreath of laurel to surround the shield. This is a great opportunity to acquire one of the few surviving groups of this impressive china. This offering includes the tea pot, sugar bowl, and six (6) cups and saucers. The service comes with a privately printed volume on the history of the china.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
