Description
 

THE ROOMS OF THE WHITE HOUSE is ONE OF THE CENTRAL AND EXCLUSIVE OFFICIAL COLLECTIONS OF THE WHITE HOUSE GIFT SHOP, EST. 1946

The Yellow Oval Room is the Eigth Room of the Ongoing "Rooms" Series


There is another oval room above the Blue Room. This is called the Yellow Oval Room and is often used for formal private receptions for important guests. The room has three doors, which lead to the Central Hall, the Truman Balcony, and the Living Room. Dolley Madison first decorated the room in yellow damask in 1809. In 1851, Abigail Fillmore got an allocation from Congress for books to make the room into the first White House library. The Harrison Family continued to use the room as a library and family parlor and, in 1889, put the first White House Christmas tree here. Franklin D Roosevelt converted the room into his study, and it was in this room on December 7, 1941, that he learned of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Harry Truman continued to use the room as a study and opened access to a new balcony he added to the South Portico in 1948. The Rooms of the White House Ornament Collection from the White House Gift Shop, Est. 1946 are architecturally correct interior dioramas of the White House Rooms. These exceptional collectibles and gifts are handcrafted in Rhode Island, USA, by the official ornament makers, are completely finished in 24KT gold on premium brass with exquisitely baked enamels, and include an informational history card for each piece in this exceptional new White House Collection.
