My passion for presidential trivia fuels “The Presidonuts of the United States” series. I first acquired my set of Louis Marx & Co. presidential figurines at the Brimfield Antique Fair, and it wasn’t long before I coupled them with doughnuts. Both are enormously photogenic. The original figurines from the 1960s were hand-painted and now carry a rich patina. Doughnuts, with their textures and colors are wonderfully complimentary. And they “sprinkle” U.S. history with humor. This series wouldn’t be possible but for the herculean effort of Patrick Verrone who cast the modern Presidents (Ford-Obama) to complete the figurine set. Here’s more about Patrick and how to buy his unique creations.
