    Description

    Herbert and Lou Henry Hoover: 1932 Presidential Christmas Card. The first "official" White House Christmas card went out during the Coolidge Administration. For collector's of such items, the Hoover, following closely thereafter, is a key to completing a set and therefore extremely desirable. The card consists of two 5 1/4" x 9" photographs blindstamped Harris & Ewing. One depicts the President on horseback and the other depicts the First Lady with her two German shepherds. The photos are inscribed: "A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Herbert Hoover And from Lou Henry Hoover and Weegie and Pat. 1932-3." The Hoover Library indicates only ten sets of this exact design were produced and distributed to close personal staff members. The inscriptions are printed or engraved. The pair is beautifully matted and framed.

    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.
