The principle design elements of the elegant Truman China are a band of
soft green between Gold; and on the outer rim with a gold band etched with a
cable or chain motif. The Presidential Seal is rendered in gold on the border
of each piece but prominently displayed in the center of the service plate,
which is handsomely featured above.

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.
