OF LAURA AND GEORGE W. BUSH

The Imposing 2008 - 11" Official White House China Dinner Plate, as selected by the President and Mrs. Bush. The eagle motif (top center) was taken directly from the inlay on a White House sideboard that once belonged to the famed statesman, Daniel Webster

George Bush Service Plate
Both the green cross-hatched pattern and the ring of laurel wreaths, on the above 9 3/8" George Bush dessert plate, were derived from the personal family china, of the James Madison family. The White House has examples of Madison family china within their own Executive Mansion collection.

George W. Bush (2001-2009) – Total press scrutiny was avoided by President George Bush and the First Lady with the intriguing late arrival date of the 2008 Official White House China by Lenox Inc. of Trenton, New Jersey. A Total of 320 Pieces mysteriously Arrived on January 7, 2009 - A mere 13 days before the arrival of Barack Obama.
The Total Cost was $492,798.00 - A half-million dollars, but all funds were gifted by friends of the President and First Lady via a white house trust fund, at no cost to taxpayers.

The Inspiration of the overall design of The White House China, with the close collaboration of Laura Bush, was believed to come from of the private china of our fourth Presidential Founding Father – James and Dolley Madison. But in the case of the Eagle and Thirteen-Stars on the service plate above, it was taken directly from the inlay on a White House sideboard that once belonged to Daniel Webster. All photos pertaining to Official White House China of The George W.
