Antique Settee from the White House with letter of provenance. On the block Sept. 27th!
This Victorian settee was purchased by the current owner it in the mid 1970s, in rural eastern Kansas. At that time it was reupholstered to its’ present fabric by family patriarch, EC Miller, of Kansas City, Kansas. Mr Miller discovered this letter tacked onto the internal framework within this setee. Current owners minor library research, during the 1970s, found mention of an post Civil War estate auction at the U.S. presidential residence, D.C., consistant with this letters’ message. This letter was framed.
