Benjamin Harrison 1889 - 1893

Of all the White House china patterns to date, there are few more celebrated than that of President and Mrs. Benjamin Harrison. Caroline Harrison had once taught china painting to young ladies in Indianapolis. Thus, she chose to personally design the pattern for her White House china: an American Eagle motif at the center and a border design of open corn ears combining cobalt blue and gold. An inner border represents each of the existing American states at that time with 44 gold stars. The Limoges firm of Tresseman and Vogt was selected to produce the china for Mrs. Harrison, who meanwhile busied herself with the restoration of china that was left over from previous administrations.
