THE WHITE HOUSE CRECHE

Since 1967, the White House "Creche" has been the centerpiece of the East Room. Mrs. Charles W. Engelhard Jr. of Far Hills, New Jersey, gave the "Creche" to the White House as a gift. The 47 baroque figures in the crèche are made of carved wood and terra cotta, created in Naples, Italy in the late 18-th century. Mrs. Englehard donated 10 additional figures and funds for a new tableau which was first displayed n 1999. This is an exceptional ornament with a 24KT gold finished frame and the White House Creche recessed for great visual effect.
