A themed White House Christmas Ornament celebrating the beginning of the tenure of President Barack Obama is now available from Friends of the White House. Dedicated to exploring historical events of the White House and its Presidents, this keepsake commemorates the historic inauguration of President Barack Obama. This ornament features an original painting depicting President Barack Obama being administered the Presidential Oath of Office with the Bible that Abraham Lincoln used when he took the Oath of Office.
Highly traditional, innovative and stunningly original, Friends of the White House Christmas Ornaments are worthy of their lofty status of capturing the rich history and heritage of the White House and its Presidents.
"We go to painstaking detail to present both historically accurate and aesthetically pleasing ornaments," said Peter P. Gacicia III, President/CEO of Friends of the White House. "Our series of Christmas ornaments reflect my passion for American history, my fascination with the White House and its Presidents, as well as my strong desire to offer timeless, glittering art pieces based on our nation's history."
Earlier ornaments in the series commemorate George Washington's supervision of the construction of the White House and John Adams' arrival as the first President to reside in the newly constructed White House. Each of the themed White House Christmas Ornaments in the series is elegantly gift boxed and includes historically significant descriptive literature.
Friends of the White House handcrafted White House Christmas Ornaments are blown glass, silvered, individually painted and intricately decorated. The decorating requires subtle and fine brushwork, and complex color schemes enriched with unusual tints and bright, intense colors. Each ornament requires 10 days to paint and decorate giving the ornament its distinctive handcrafted look.
The President Barack Obama Commemorative Inaugural Ornament costs $49.95. Like all Friends of the White House Christmas Ornaments, it is sure to become a cherished family heirloom, passed from generation to generation.
