Maud Shaw was the Kennedy family nanny for seven years. She stayed with the family through triumph and tragedy and was an integral part of the close-knit family. She always counted herself lucky to have a first row seat to so many historical events, but she always considered herself luckier still to have been part of so lovely a family and to have had such kind and generous employers. She would often recount charming and comical stories of her time in the White House. When John Jr., for example, almost caused an international incident when he drop a toy gun from a balcony during an White House reception. Or when Caroline escaped her supervision one day an wandered into a presidential press conference, wearing her motherís high heels. She loved her work and because of her gratitude and affection towards her employers, she would often buy Jackie small gifts. She gave this Teddy Bear Brooch to Jackie when John Jr. was born. Jackie found it a particularly suitable gift for the occasion and wore the pin often. She would wear the pin most of all when she knew she would be meeting with children.

Comes in an gift boxed that is a velour-covered steel case. Included is a Camrose and Kross Certificate of authenticity. Also a romance card with some fascinating information about Jackie and her life.
