Description
 
From the White House Gift Shop, Est. 1946 -- The Thomas Jefferson 8 inch bronze finished crushed stone bust is as seen for sets in many film and television series. Larger versions are seen in television sets and 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.,Anthony Giannini, whose ancestors include Anthony (Antonio) Giannini, a master viniculturist came to Virginia in 1773 at the request of Thomas Jefferson and worked for Jefferson at Monticello collecting seeds for Jefferson's friends in France, planting grape vines in the vineyard, and grafting in the Monticello orchards. A number of letters between Jefferson and Giannini survive.
