Cleveland cigar bands

In 1886, the first presidential wedding was celebrated in the White House. Grover Cleveland married Francis Folsom, his ward and junior by twenty-seven years. This pair of cigar bands is from the Notarianni Political Collection. Love birds cradle each portrait surrounded by red roses , and Lady Liberty waves a flag over their heads.

The Clevelands had five children. Their second daughter, Esther, was the first baby born in the White House. Happy Valentine’s Day to all members of the Regis community!
