2013 Official White House Historical Association Christmas Ornament
SKU: XMO154The 2013 official White House Christmas ornament honors Woodrow Wilson, the twenty-eighth president of the United States. The years of Wilson's two terms in office, from 1913 to 1921, are defined by the unprecedented devastation of World War I, yet Wilson himself would be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1919, and his life is distinguished by his resolve that the Great War would truly be the war to end all wars. It was President Wilson's extraordinary quest for a lasting world peace that inspired the design of our ornament. The centerpiece of the White House Christmas ornament for 2013 is an American Elm tree planted by President Wilson on the North Lawn of the White House on December 18, 1913, just before Christmas. This snowy scene is surrounded by a 24-karat gold-finished frame comprised of elm leaves on the innermost circle, a wreath of olive branches in the middle, and holly leaves bordering Wilson’s monogram on the outermost circle. Two peace doves perch upon the olive branches, bearing banners that announce “The White House, Christmas 2013.” The words inscribed on the reverse side of the ornament were delivered by President Wilson in his War Message to Congress of April 2, 1917: “Peace must be planted upon the tested foundations of political liberty.” Non-tarnishing 24k gold-finished brass and acrylic dome. Measures 2.75 in diameter. Made in the USA.
2012 Official White House Historical Christmas Ornament
SKU: XMO153The Official 2012 White House Christmas Ornament honors President William Howard Taft who introduced the automobile to White House transportation in 1909, breaking a long presidential tradition of reliance on horse-drawn vehicles. The ornament celebrates Taft's adoption of the automobile, his love of manufacture and invention, and his ready acceptance of modernity. It depicts President and Mrs. Taft enroute to deliver Christmas presents. They are seated behind chauffeur George H. Robinson in the White Motor Company's Model M, a seven passenger steam-powered touring car embellished with the Great Seal of the United States on the doors. The color, as described at the time, is "a harmonious blend of subdued greens." The President William Taft White House ornament for 2012 is made in the United States of highly-polished brass with a coating of nickel, finished in 24-karat gold. Non-tarnishing 24k gold-plated brass. Measures 2" x 3.5". Made in the USA.
2011 Official White House Historical Association Ornament
SKU: XMO148The 2011 White House Christmas ornament honors the administration of Theodore Roosevelt, the twenty-sixth president of the United States, and it reflects the excitement that President Roosevelt, his wife Edith, and their lively young family brought to life at the White House. The front face of the Teddy Roosevelt White House Christmas ornament is a color illustration derived from a political cartoon drawn by William A. Rogers in 1901. Capturing the anticipation associated with the family's first White House Christmas, a jolly Santa Clause crosses the North Lawn carrying a large bag of toys over his shoulder and announces, "I hear that there are some kids in the White House this year." Non-tarnishing 24k gold-plated brass. Measures 1.75' x 2.5". Made in the USA.
2010 Official White House Historical Association Christmas Ornament
SKU: XMO147The 2010 White House Christmas ornament honors President William McKinley, 25th President of the United States, (1897 -1901), and celebrates the role of music in the traditions of the White House. The McKinley administration is remembered as a time when the nation moved beyond its continental boundaries to become an international power. The American people idolized McKinley during his presidency, so suddenly cut short by an assassin’s bullets six months into his second term. In celebration of the nation’s patriotic mood as the century turned, the illustrations commissioned for the President William McKinley White House ornament feature festive, colorful scenes from the annual Army Navy Reception at the White House in 1900. The front face of the Christmas ornament for 2010 depicts members of the United States Marine Band performing on the snow covered North Drive as arriving guests disembark from their carriages. The reverse side of the ornament shows the band playing for President and Mrs. McKinley and their party in the flag bedecked splendor of the East Room. It was in this High Victorian East Room that the McKinleys began the era of “musicales” (receptions with music as the leading feature) at the White House, a tradition that continues to this day. Measures 2.75" x 2.5"/ Made in the USA.
