Offered are a beautiful trio of ceramic poodle statues from Elvis Presley's grandmother's room at Graceland. Minnie Mae or Elvis' Aunt Delta gifted the set to Graceland maid and cook Nancy Rooks. Thankfully, Nancy had stored the dogs wrapped in foam packing material on which she had written “Elvis' Grand. Room.” It's  tidy little piece of provenance, in addition to the LOA from her family.

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 dog measures 5 inches tall, and the shorter pair measure 2 inches tall. The large dog still maintains its original manufacturer's sticker. Near Mint condition.
