    Description

    [Abraham Lincoln]: Fabric from the White House "Red Room". 8" x 10.5" section of red Damask fabric, probably silk, which, according to an internal inventory label generated by a past owner, is fabric from the Red Room of the White House from the time of the Lincoln Administration. Lacking any other documentation, we cannot substantiate that claim. Based on some tack holes and the pattern of light soiling in the center, it appears to have been used as upholstery for a chair and could very well date from that period.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
