White-glazed serving platter used by the Kennedy family in their home, with provenance from the 2005 Sotheby's sale, ''Property From Kennedy Family Homes''. A partial excerpt of Caroline Kennedy's letter from the sale reads, ''The objects in this book and the places they represent are filled with memories, particularly the ones from Hyannis Port where our family still spends such happy times. These objects link directly to my parents' time in the White House...many of the pieces were acquired by my grandfather from Gerald Shea, an early collector of American furniture and decorative arts. During the 1950's when there was comparatively little interest, my mother added to the collection through her lifelong love of visiting antique shops on the Cape and Nantucket. The Shea collection and her own expeditions sparked her interest in American deco­rative arts, a field which she elevated to a new prominence through her restoration of the White House.''

Ceramic platter features soft scalloped design, measuring 14.25'' x 10.75'' in diameter. With maker's mark of ''Made in Portugal for Neuwirth'' on verso, and Sotheby's stickers attached. Very good to near fine condition.
