    bookcase
    Family Dining Room
    These French porcelain service pieces, shown here on display in a bookcase in the White House Family Dining Room, were made by Tressemannes and Vogt of Limoges, France, in 1892. They are part of a state china service that President Benjamin Harrison first ordered for the White House. The service featured a dark blue border, corn and goldenrod decorations, 44 gold stars representing the number of states in the Union when Harrison purchased the china and a design similar to the one found on the Lincoln china, with an eagle standing atop a shield, combining similar elements as the iconography from the Great Seal and the Seal of the President.
