This was presented to General Haig by President Fidel Ramos of the Philippines while General Haig was Secretary of State under President Ronald Reagan. This beautiful marble box has the seal of the Philippines inlaid on top under a transparent finish. Unfortunately, there is a crack in the top; probably just in the transparent finish and not is the seal beneath. I can see no way of separating the transparent piece, and actually see no reason to do so. It appears to be a stable crack, and not interfering with the function of the box, or the appearance of the seal. It shows up well in the photo. For this reason we have reduced our price by more than half. It comes in its own grass cloth box.
Size: 8" by 4" by 4".
Signed: "F Ramos" on the cover under the seal.
Condition: See above description.
Provenance: From the estate of General Alexander M. Haig Jr., U. S. Secretary of State under Reagan.
