Catalogue Note

The present example bears a diamond-set monogram reading 'MGV'. It was originally given to Mary Green Veeder as a gift from Charles Deering, a close family friend, upon the birth of her son, Charles Deering Veeder in 1907.

Mary Green Veeder was the daughter of Charles Green, a well-regarded Savannah gentleman for whom the historic Green-Meldrim house was built. She and her husband, Ten Eyck Dewitt Veeder, named their son after their dear friend, who was Charles Veeder's roommate while they were at the United States Naval Academy. Deering's family were the owners of Deering Harvester Company, now known as International Harvester.

The present lot is being offered on behalf of the family of the original owner.
