Description: Pair of soapstone bookends, owned and used by President Hoover. The bookends are light green soapstone, 4" x 5 1/2", with a floral relief design. The anecdotal letter of provenance that accompanies them is from Lillian Rogers Parks, author of My Thirty Years Backstairs at the White House. She states: "...The pair of bookends were owned and used by President Hoover as well as the First Lady, Lou Henry Hoover. They were in the Family Living Quarters of the White House during the entire Hoover Administration. Mrs. Hoover gave them to my Mama...shortly before the swearing in of F.D.R. on March 4, 1933." Very good condition.

It was quite a moving moment when I actually set eyes on the letters this morning! Thank you very much - doing business with you was an uncommercial pleasure. Kind regards - Benno
