White House China Franklin Pierce


Franklin Pierce 1853 - 8.25" Plate, from The Raleigh DeGeer Amyx Collection - Manufactured, probably French; imported and decorated by Haughwout and Dailey, New York. With golden blue rim lines and border stippled with Gold dots. At center is an empty blue and Gold escutcheon. There were Only 287 Pieces in a total order.
In actual fact, Haughwout and Dailey were bright “Marketeers”, as they already had the newly elected President Pierce in mind. Haughwout and Dailey was exhibiting in 1853 at the New York Exhibition at the Crystal Palace, with the express intention of attracting President Franklin Pierce’s patronage.



Their persistence paid off; with the addition above, as the elegant selection of the 1853 Official White House China. Although the 287 pieces were French Ware, the Franklin Pierce service marked the first American decorated porcelain table service ever purchased by The United States Government for The White House.

My name is Raleigh DeGeer Amyx. Currently I possess the most prolific American Presidential China collection in America. However, it is always in the forefront of my mind to keep improving the quality and quantity of this White House China collection.

If you happen to have several examples of Presidential China that are either duplicates, or have less appeal to you today than they once did, then feel free to contact me immediately using the contact form or phone number below - I would be very interested in buying your sample Presidential pieces. With the above in mind, please know that all contacts from you to me are to remain totally confidential in nature. You will find me a fair man.

Please feel free to review the current Presidential China pieces in The Raleigh DeGeer Amyx Collection on this website. However, I have multiple floor-to-near-ceiling lighted and mirrored cases awaiting additional and/or duplicate Official White House China examples to include along with existing highlights.
