Vase Featuring Ford Automobile, Presented to Henry Ford, 1928

Summary

Over the years, Henry Ford received hundreds of gifts from people who felt a connection with the automotive entrepreneur. For many, he was "one of them," someone who also just happened to become a great industrialist. The fact that this is one of a pair of vases given by a Swedish missionary posted in China demonstrates his world-wide appeal.
