OUR 39TH PRESIDENT (1977-1981)

Friends of President and Mrs. Carter presented them an attractive Service from Lenox decorated with the Gold Presidential Seal and a "Carter Green" Border, surrounded in Intricate 3-D Gold Detail.

The well known White House China Collector & Historian, Set Momjian, spearheaded the private fund raising for The Carter China project. However, President Jimmy Carter's 1981 White House China arrived too late for their own use in the Executive Mansion.

Although the beautiful Presidential China is Marked in Gold – "The White House – 1980 OR Jimmy Carter", this White House China was actually completed after President Jimmy Carter and First lady Roslyn Carter left The White House in 1981, for Plains, Georgia.

Therefore, almost all of their, "Official" White House China was delivered to the Carter Presidential Library, in that no public funds had been expended in the design and purchase of this Service.  However, it is believed that the Executive Mansion does have examples in their impressive White House China Collection.
