George Washington, the only president never to live in the White House, oversaw its design and determined that it be built of stone and embellished with rich carving. The stone masons are said to have made a labor of love carving the lush and playful 14-foot swag above the North Door. Scottish roses, acorns, fruits, and oak leaves fill this abundant garland suspended from fluttering ribbons, all rendered in Aquia stone from a quary in Virginia. It remains unquestionably the finest stone carving in America. This Salisbury Pewter 3-inch keepsake box featuring patterns from the stone work is the perfect gift for your little one.
