Mount Vernon’s 2011 holiday ornament is inspired by artist Arnold Friberg’s original painting, “The Prayer at Valley Forge”. The image on the front of the ornament is the snow kissed west front of the Mansion looking exceptionally beautiful by the light of the moon and one bright star. A three-dimensional red banner with “Mount Vernon 2011” shows across the lower edge.
On the reverse is the central portion of the famous painting of George Washington kneeling in the snow at Valley Forge and a red banner with “The Prayer at Valley Forge” across the lower edge.
The images are on porcelain ovals surrounded by an eight point decorative framing with a 24kt gold finish.
The ornament is approximately 3 ¼” wide and 3” tall and includes red ribbon for hanging. Beautifully gift boxed with an educational enclosure card.
