2014 White House Architecture Ornament

THE WASHINGTON D.C. ARCHITECTURE COLLECTION

Anthony Giannini, USAFR, Design Series

The WASHINGTON D.C. ARCHITECTURE ornament for 2014 is The White House. Exquisitely and entirely finished in brilliant 24KT gold on specially treated premium brass, the 1st annual National Architecture ornament and model is three-dimensional and meticulously handcrafted to museum quality by American ornament masters in Rhode Island, USA. Each year, based on architectural and symbolic concepts by Anthony Giannini, the White House Gift Shop creates a new National Architecture ornament and model to commemorate great American architects and architectural symbols of America.

By supporter requests, we will concept, create, and make a new heirloom piece every three to four months for the National Architecture Collection -- collected, gifted, and traded worldwide by discerning collectors, diplomats, patriotic citizens, heads-of-states, and ministers of many countries.

During November, 2014, we will release the 4th heirloom architecture in the collection: THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT soon followed by the 5th piece – The Washington Cathedral – the spiritual center for many American Presidents. This exciting new National Architecture collection of the White House Gift Shop, Est. 1946 by permanent order of President Harry S. Truman is endless -- for we will add all significant American architecture of politically symbolic importance not only in Washington D.C. but also across America.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WHITE HOUSE

The White House is the official residence and principal workplace of the President of the United States. Located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW in Washington, D.C. It has been the residence of every U.S. president since John Adams in 1800 and is the symbolic center of democracy and freedom not only in America but for many countries yet struggling for freedom from tyranny and oppression.

Designed by Irish-born James Hoban, Neoclassical architecture of the White House was built between 1792 and 1800 of white-painted Aquia Creek sandstone. When Thomas Jefferson moved into the White House in 1801, he, along with architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe, expanded the House outward, thus creating two colonnades meant to conceal storage and stables.

In 1814, during the War of 1812, the White House was set ablaze by the British Army in what is now called the Burning of Washington, destroying the interior and charring much of the exterior. Almost immediately, reconstruction began and President James Monroe moved into the partially restored Executive Residence in October 1817. Rebuilding continued with the addition of the South Portico in 1824 and the North Portico in 1829.

In 1901, President Theodore Roosevelt relocated all work offices consequent of overcrowding to the newly constructed West Wing in 1901. In 1909, eight years later, President William Howard Taft expanded the West Wing and created the first Oval Office which was eventually moved as operations expanded. The third-floor attic was converted to living quarters in 1927 by augmenting the existing hip roof with long shed dormers. A newly constructed East Wing was used as a reception area for social events, and President Thomas Jefferson's colonnades connected the new wings. In 1946, President H. S. Truman added the now iconic South Balcony. East Wing alterations were also completed in 1946, thus creating additional office space. By 1948, the White House’s load-bearing exterior walls and internal wood beams were close to failure. In 1946, President Harry S. Truman (who originated the White House Gift Shop by permanent order), began the complete reconstruction of the interior of the White House: Interior rooms were completely dismantled, a new internal load-bearing steel frame was constructed inside the walls, and once this massive restoration was completed, interior rooms were rebuilt.

The Executive Residence is made up of six stories: Ground Floor, State Floor, Second Floor, and Third Floor, as a two-story basement. The term White House is often used as a metonym for the Executive Office of the President of the United States and for the president's administration and advisers.

Today, the White House Complex includes the Executive Residence, West Wing, East Wing, the Eisenhower Executive Office Building—the former State Department, which now houses offices for the President's staff and the Vice President—and Blair House, a guest residence.

The Presidential Special, the train that carried President Harding west at the outset of his ambitious voyage and that would tragically carry his casket back east following his sudden death, just two months later...

Truman's Balcony Ornament dimensions: 3x 2.5 inches


It would be far more architecturally correct to have a balcony up here! -- President Harry S. Truman


2014 WHITE HOUSE GIFT SHOP ANNUAL ORNAMENT: TRUMAN’S BALCONY

The 2014 White House Gift Shop’s official annual ornament honors President Harry S. Truman, thirty-third president of the United States from 1945-1953. Truman came from modest beginnings, grew up on the family farm in Independence, Missouri, and did not attend college. After high school, he worked as a time keeper, clerk, bookkeeper, farmer, then joined the National Guard. When World War I erupted, Truman volunteered for duty. Truman’s organization and leadership skills were soon recognized, and he was quickly promoted to captain in France. Despite his often shy and modest temperament, Truman captured the respect and admiration of his men, leading them successfully through heavy fighting during the Meuse-Argonne campaign. Among Truman’s accomplishments as President were ending World War II, containment of the conflict in Korea, initiating the Berlin Airlift, creation of his Fair Deal, banning racial discrimination in federal hiring practices, and desegregation of the military. Truman was not afraid of contentious or unpopular causes, one of the core traits of presidential leadership.

HISTORY OF PRESIDENT TRUMAN'S CREATION OF THE WHITE HOUSE SOUTH BALCONY

“It would be far more architecturally correct to have a balcony up here!”

President Truman spoke these words during the week of February 1946 and subsequently forged ahead to make the first change to the White House since 1872-- the replacement of the canvas canopies on the south face of the White House with the now iconic South Balcony of the White House. Truman's proposal for a balcony sparked outrage and debate in America about the mutilation of the White House. Critics abounded at Truman’s proposal to change the White House face, the first exterior change of the White House in 117 years. Members of the Commission of Fine Arts argued that the Classic Greek style of the White House would be mutilated simply to create a leisure space for the First Family. It got worse: Political cartoonists satirized the balcony project, claiming that Truman could lose the 1948 presidential election because of his proposed degradation of the White House. The Fine Arts Commission eventually agreed to the proposed balcony but only if the change was approved by the renowned architect William Adams Delano. The Commission believed that Delano would never approve Truman’s balcony. Truman argued that the addition of a balcony would provide shade for the first floor portico, avoid the need for new awnings, and would balance the south face of the White House. While Truman’s reasons were logical and aesthetically accurate, he had personal reasons for wanting a south side balcony: The view from the Oval Room was magnificent but more importantly, Truman hoped that his wife, Bess, would spend more time at the White House given a South Balcony with such a splendid view.

In small acts of vision and leadership amidst resistance, the vision and acumen is often revealed of a President or future president. Despite opposition from the Fine Arts Commission and funding from Congress uncertain, Truman forged ahead with the construction of the now quintessential South Balcony of the White House. Well known for his position that the Buck Stops with the President and given the resistance from Congress, Truman made no request to Congress for the $16,050.74 cost of constructing the South Balcony, for he paid for the balcony from his own household account. Once completed, many of those who vigorously opposed Truman’s Balcony quickly wrote to the President to say that the new balcony substantially improved the south face of the White House.

Jefferson Bust & Statue
The President Jefferson bust from the White House Gift Shop, Est. 1946 is the same Jefferson bust that we provided as essential set pieces for top-rated and acclaimed television dramas such as House of Cards, Madame Secretary, State of Affairs, Scandal and major films including The Butler.

The Thomas Jefferson statue is a museum-class bust with exceptional presence. Our Jefferson and other statues are used for sets in many film and television series as well as in government buildings and Federalist style homes and legal offices. President Jefferson served as vice-president to John Adams and was later elected president, serving two consecutive terms (1801-1809). He founded the University of Virginia, which he also designed architecturally. After his retirement at Monticello, Jefferson became a living legend, a sage, whose advice and company were sought after by the best minds of two continents. When he died, on July 4th, 1826, 50 years to the day after the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, the country knew it had lost a monumental figure.

Ships in a substantially padded and protective box nearly four-feet long. Perhaps of interest for your collection and display of the President Jefferson bust is that one of our director's ancestors includes Anthony (Antonio) Giannini -- a master gardener and viniculturist who came to Virginia in 1773, served in the Virginia Militia, and worked by request of Thomas Jefferson at Monticello collecting seeds for Jefferson's friends in France, planting grape vines in the vineyard, caring for the North Orchard's apples trees and the South Orchard's apricots, almonds, apples, cherries, and peaches, planting grape vines from Legaux in the Southwest Vineyard, and grafting in the Monticello orchards. Jefferson granted Giannini status as a "Freeman" after five years of indentured service at Monticello. Eventually, Antonio Giannini purchased a tract of land from Jefferson. Several letters between Jefferson and Giannini survive. The life of Antonio Giannini and his family in Virginia became the inspiration for two now iconic television series: THE WALTONS and FALCON CREST. We thought you would enjoy this little-known back-story that provides historical context and meaning for the collection, display, or gift giving of your Thomas Jefferson bust.

The New York City Police Department (NYPD or NYCPD), officially the City of New York Police Department, was established in 1845, and is the largest municipal police force in the United States, having primary responsibilities in law enforcement and investigation within the five boroughs of New York City. The NYPD is one of the oldest police departments established in the United States; tracing its roots back to the first Dutch eight man night watch in 1625, when New York City was New Amsterdam.

The NYPD has a broad array of specialized services, including the Emergency Service Unit, K-9, harbor patrol, air support, bomb disposal, counter-terrorism, criminal intelligence, anti-gang, anti-organized crime, narcotics, public transportation and public housing; The New York City Transit Police and New York City Housing Authority Police Department were fully integrated into the NYPD in 1995. According to the department, its mission is to "enforce the laws, preserve the peace, reduce fear, and provide for a safe environment."

White House Easter Eggs Signed

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WHITE HOUSE EASTER EGG ROLL

The original site of the Easter Monday Egg Roll was the grounds of the United States Capitol. By the mid-1870s, the egg rolling activities on the West Terraces had gained notoriety as the children turned the Capitol grounds into their Easter Monday playground. The first egg rolls, largely family affairs, seem to have been held during the administration of President Andrew Johnson. Youngsters of the President's family dyed eggs on Sunday for the Monday rolling, which the First Lady would watch from the South Portico. The workers and tourists watched in fascination as the children rolled both their hard boiled eggs and themselves down the lush green hills.

The egg roll activity of 1876 took its toll on the grounds, a fact that did not go unnoticed by members of Congress. With an already inadequate budget to complete the landscaping and maintenance of the grounds, Congress passed a law forbidding the Capitol grounds to be used as a children's playground. The law was to be enforced in 1877. But that Easter Monday rain poured down, canceling any outdoor activities sending the egg rollers indoors to play.

On Easter Saturday of 1878, a small announcement in the local press informed the egg rollers the new law would be enforced. President Rutherford B. Hayes, taking his daily walk, was approached by a number of young egg rollers who inquired about the possibilities of egg rolling on the South Lawn of the White House. President Hayes, upon his return to the White House, issued an official order that should any children arrive to egg roll on Easter Monday, they were to be allowed to do so. That Monday, as children were being turned away from the Capitol grounds, word quickly spread to go to the White House!

President Hayes and his wife, Lucy, officially opened the White House grounds to the children of the area for egg rolling that Easter Monday. Successive Presidents continued the tradition, and the event has been held on the South Lawn ever since.
