Description
 

THE WHITE HOUSE ON THE EVE OF THE TURN OF A CENTURY, 1899, the design of which was influenced by the art of Norway during the European art period as seen by the point and angle-of-view as well as through the arrangement of the procession of carriages and people.

The 1991 White House ornament was first placed on the Christmas tree in the White House by a member of the Uniformed Division of Secret Service and is now a treasured heirloom, worldwide, by collectors and traders who value the historical and often artistically referential nuances of the White House Gift Shop’s official annual ornaments as well as the beauty of this collection with all ornaments featuring: complete 24KT gold finishing, elegantly one color at a time baked enamels, individually crafted by American hands (these are not mass production pieces), historical information cards, and dated by year to mark the passage of the seasons and times of your life and family, and exquisitely made, always, only by our master ornament artists and official makers in Rhode Island, USA.

On Christmas Eve, 1991, an active duty officer of the Uniformed Division of U.S. Secret Service placed this first White House Gift Shop official annual Christmas and Holidays ornament on the White House Christmas Tree. Known then as the Secret Service Ornament Collection, in 2013 the collection became the White House Annual Ornament Collection a seamless continuation of the visionary work of the pioneers who created this, the only original and president ordered White House Gift Shop in White House history - now trademark/service mark protected in our 70th year by the United States Patent and Trademark Office in recognition of our provenance and history of service to presidents, citizens, diplomats, departments of government, and friends of America, globally. The journey to United States trademark protection of the White House Gift Shop, Est. 1946® has been long sought, vitally necessary, and we thank you for your support across these many decades in helping The White House Gift Shop advance its goal of transforming to a significant American foundation with a long history of doing good for others and celebrating the dignity and honor of being Americans.

1991, White House Ornament, #1 in Collection, The October 7, 2016
Reviewer: S WEAVER from SOMERSET, NJ United States  
Having given a White House ornament a couple of years ago, the gift instantly sprung to mind to send to someone else.
Apart from it being beautifully detailed and good to look at, it was also well made.  
I was looking for something made in the USA and found it the perfect item.  Rachel was most helpful also, and delivered on time ready to ship to Singapore.  Thank you.  I will be using you again.
