President Lincoln's table

President Lincoln's table

This place setting is my own recreation of a place setting used by President Lincoln using my own family heirlooms and authentically-recreated White House china used during the administration of President Abraham Lincoln. As background, Mary Todd Lincoln was renowned for her enjoyment of shopping, thus she selected the Lincoln White House china shortly after her husband's inauguration. An elegant French design, the Lincoln china combines the American eagle with various decorations in a brilliant color called "solferino". This purple-red hue was invented by the French in 1859 and was very popular among the fashionable hosts of the Lincolns' day. President Barack Obama used these replica pieces during his inaugural luncheon on January 20, 2009. This particular set was created by the Woodmere China of New Castle, PA. I made the place card in Old English round or Copperplate hand using authentic White House place cards gilded and embossed in gold. Plate and place card from my private collection.
