From the Presidential Seal and the American Eagle to the Truman Balcony, every ornament on this colorful tree has a story to tell. The collection depicted in watercolor by artist Katharine Barnwell represents many of the annual Christmas Ornaments produced by The White House Historical Association since 1981. Not only is each ornament elegant and finely crafted, but each one symbolizes a chapter in American History, as told through the events of a single presidency or White House anniversary. Milestones such as the introduction of electric lights and automobiles are dsiplayed alongeside portraits of Abraham Lincoln and the beautiful Angelica van Buren, while the North Door, the South Portico, the Blue Room, and the White House Christmas tree help us to experience our own White House Christmas. The back of the ornament features the artist’s signature and the White House Historical Association logo.
