OFFICIAL WHITE HOUSE CHINA


THEODORE AND EDITH ROOSEVELT'S
STATELY OFFICIAL WHITE HOUSE CHINA
BY WEDGWOOD - IN 1903


Official White House China Theodore Roosevelt
THEODORE & EDITH CAROW ROOSEVELT - 1903 - 9"- STATE FISH PLATE - THIS EXAMPLE IS FROM THE RALEIGH DeGEER AMYX COLLECTION


Theodore Roosevelt (1901-1909) – 9" Fish Plate – Manufactured by Wedgwood and imported by Van Husen Charles Company. This example is from one of the 120 different place settings selected by the First Lady, in 1903 - a total of 1,296 pieces. Today the Theodore Roosevelt White House China, from a collectors point of view, is noted as quite scarce, thus difficult to ever obtain.

Actually, Mrs. Roosevelt merely chose a Wedgwood Pattern from among several English and porcelain samples. This resulted in a border design of simple, radiating Gold lines, with the only dramatic change being the important addition of The Great Seal of The United States. See photograph at right for full details of entire verso marking.

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.
