Vase with Fordson Tractor, Presented to Henry Ford, circa 1925

Summary

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. This vase from the Educational Institute at Sofia, Bulgaria, with the Fordson tractor as the focal point, suggests the significance of industrialized agriculture to eastern Europeans.
