This glass decoupage coaster depicts a painting by artist John Ross Key. Key painted this image of the north side of the White House in 1914. Key, the grandson of Francis Scott Key, captured the bustling activity of carriages and pedestrians on the approach to the North Portico of the President's House on a bright summer day. Today the painting hangs in Blair House: The President's Guest House, just across Pennsylvania Avenue from the scene Key captured.
