Item 8012 - George Washington Germantown White House Fragment Catalog 603 (Feb 2021)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $836.25 (includes buyer's premium)


Wooden fragment of the Germantown White House in Pennsylvania which twice housed George Washington during his presidency, measuring 2.5″ x 1″ x 1″, with an old annotated slip nailed to the side: "Piece of the ballustrade [sic] from the house that Gen. Washington lived in while Pres." In very good to fine condition, with a small tear to the slip. Consignor notes that this was purchased at the estate sale of H. Lee Munson, a famous gun collector and author. Munson's family goes back to America's early days and one of his ancestors went around the country in the early 1800s collecting bits from historic structures and labeling them like this piece.
