Many presidential administrations order unique State China Services for use in Official White House entertaining. The designs reflect changing tastes of presidential families. The American company Lenox was commissioned to make a State Service in 1981 during the Reagan Administration. First Lady Nancy Reagan chose a formal elegant design with the Presidential Coat of Arms in raised gold paste in the center surrounded by a wide border in favorite color of red. This whimsical felt ornament features that same pattern on a teapot and would look perfect on any tree.
