A BOOKEND STRAIGHT FROM THE DESK OF JOHN F. KENNEDY
Evelyn Lincoln, Secretary to John F. Kennedy, for 12 historic years, led Raleigh DeGeer Amyx to a Bookend - straight from the Desk of J.F.K. Mrs. Lincoln presented J.F.K.'s Bookend to her friend, Mr. Amyx, along with detailed Historical Provenance on White House Stationary.

The Gold and Black Bookend (8.25" x 6"), is in the design of a Wind-Swept Eagle, nestled above Golden Stars. J.F.K., an avid reader, would have found bookends an essential part of his daily and Political life. The J.F.K. Bookend is to be seen in front of Senator Kennedy, as well as the stunning Jacqueline Kennedy, in the bottom center portion of the appealing picture above.
