Many presidential administrations order unique State China Services for use in official White House entertaining. The designs reflect changing tastes of presidential families. In 1934, during the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Eleanor wanted to promote American companies leading to a purchase of dinner and dessert service from Lenox in New York. The service is rimmed in a marine blue with 48 stars to represent every state, in addition to the presidential seal prominently displayed below the stars. This whimsical felt ornament features that same pattern on a teapot and would look perfect on any tree.
