Offered is Elvis Presley's large faux flower display from his home Graceland. Among the sprigs are FOUR large peacock feathers--Elvis famously kept the large birds at Graceland until they started unceremoniously pecking off the paint on his gold Cadillac! They were donated to the Memphis Zoo. The planter comes from the collection of Graceland cook Nancy Rooks. Accompanying the planter is a Polaroid of the planter taken by Nancy-this was her method of documenting the items Elvis and his family had given her. 

Nancy worked as a maid and cook for Elvis Presley at Graceland from 1967 to 1977, and stayed on to work for the family until 1982. She treasured her time working for Elvis and the Presley family, and always enjoyed sharing her memories with fans over the years. She made countless meals for Elvis, including his peanut butter and banana sandwiches. As a member of the Graceland family, Nancy was given any number of household items, decorative pieces or keepsakes that Elvis, Vernon, Elvis' grandmother Minnie Mae or Elvis' Aunt Delta wanted her to have. Sadly, Nancy passed just this past August 15, during The annual "Elvis Week" celebrations in Memphis. The items offered in this auction emanate directly from Nancy's estate and are accompanied by a letter of authenticity from her family.

The large vase of the planter measures 14 inches in diameter, and the arrangements stands over two feet tall. Near Mint condition.
