OFFICIAL WHITE HOUSE CHINA

THE MAGESTIC WHITE HOUSE CHINA OF
PRESIDENT JAMES MONROE & FIRST LADY ELIZABETH MONROE


Official White House China James Monroe
IMPRESSIVE EXAMPLE OF AN 8.625" DESSERT PLATE AS ORDERED BY PRESIDENT JAMES MONROE - CIRCA 1820 - FROM THE RALEIGH DeGEER AMYX COLLECTION

James Monroe ( Circa 1817-1820) - 8.625" - Dessert Plate - French; Manufactured by Dagoty and Honore’, Nast Paris. Some historians attribute this stunning plate to Andrew Jackson. However, after careful research, especially by Robert McNeil, Jr. and Susan Gray Detweiler, this rendering is more aptly related to the Monroe Administration as the mark on the verso was used only during the years 1816-1820.

There are currently two examples of this beautiful James Monroe Dessert Plate, in The Raleigh DeGeer Amyx Collection. Although we are revealing here (below right) the verso of one of the Amyx Collection plates, it should be noted that a perfect James Monroe example may show a faint verso marking and/or no verso marking at all.

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.
