Kennedy China

According to Margaret Klapthor's book "Official White House China", these pieces of French porcelain were chosen to be used for color samples by First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy as she considered a proposed new state china service. Unfortunately, today in 1963, she and President Kennedy boarded a plane for that fateful trip to Dallas.

The pieces shown are from the collection of Mr. and Mrs. Set Momjian.

I will always look up to Jackie Kennedy. She was SUCH a style icon and the breath of fresh air into the White House at that time.
