In Stock
Creche in the East Room of the White House. Angel in red robe. 8 cm gold ball. Hand Painted in Poland. . Each year since the first Kenndy Christmas, an 18th century Neapolitan creche has been on display in the White House. In 1961 Loretta Hines Howard, a noted collector of religious figures installed the creche in a niche in the East Room against a backdrop of gold curtains. The individual figures- men, women, angels, animals, kings and chrubs depicted the Nativitiy scene arranged in a pyamid shape symbolic of the evergreen tree. In 1967 a permanent gift of the Nativity was given to Mrs. Lyndon Johnson and is part of the White House collection.
