King Bhumibol Adulyadej presented desk sets to Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower and Lyndon B. Johnson. The first, exhibited here, was given to President Eisenhower during Their Majesties’ historic White House visit in 1960. While nineteenth-century nielloware had been intended for use in the Thai court, this modern adaptation was well suited for use in the Oval Office.
