Item DescriptionAmericanFlags.com is proud to have a limited supply of these official limited-edition White House Christmas Ornaments.
This White House ornament commemorates the presidency of Grover Cleveland and it is the second of two produced in Cleveland’s honor by the White House Historical Association.
This beautiful ornament illustrates the special place of the Christmas tree in the holiday celebrations of President Cleveland’s young family. The central hologram depicts the south façade of the White House after an evening snowfall. The warm glow of the first Christmas tree to be illuminated by electric lights is seen through the tall windows of the second floor Oval Room beyond the center of the columned portico. This softly colored view is based on a modern watercolor rendition by artist Margaret Huddy.
The reverse side of the ornament recreates a scene from the tree-trimming parties of President and Mrs. Cleveland, which were held annually for their children and those of cabinet members. The words of a period newspaper report help to describe the president’s delight in preparing Christmas day for his young family. A finely crafted gold plated wreath of snowflakes, painted ice blue frames this beautiful work of art.
This ornament makes a great gift and comes in a beautiful commemorative gift box that will be treasured forever. Our stock is limited, so place your order today.
