The White House Historical Association’s 37th ornament honors President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his historic four terms in office. Its design is inspired by the eagle cartouche adorning the speaker’s stand at Roosevelt’s first inauguration. Other details include a nod to the home radios used to broadcast his Fireside Chats to the American public, his personal monogram, and his trusty dog Fala.

All WHHA ornament sales support the mission of the non-profit, non-partisan White House Historical Association to protect, preserve, and provide public access to the history ofAmerica’s Executive Mansion.

This ornament is crafted with sandstone from the same Virginia quarry that produced the stone used to build the exterior walls of the White House more than 200 years ago. The ornament honors James Hoban, White House Architect. It is a detailed reproduction of the north and south façades of the White House enhanced with 24 karat gold finished brass accents.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Colonial Fife Player, Flag Bearer, & Drummer Ornaments

$11.50 each
Fifes and drums were used by armies around the world for centuries to provide music for marching and for communicating orders in battle. During the Revolutionary War, the Continental Army adopted uniform regulations that called for blue coats for infantry (foot) soldiers. Musicians were dressed in contrasting colors to distinguish them from fighting soldiers. Our colonial fifer, flag bearer, and drummer figures each wear a red coat with buff waistcoat and breeches. Their uniform is similar to that worn today by musicians of the U.S. Army’s Third Infantry Regiment (“The Old Guard”), a ceremonial unit based at Fort Myer, Virginia.
