Christmas Around the World includes 26 exquisitely decorated trees representing the 26 countries that President Reagan visited while in office, as well as a White House Tree. Decorations encompass the bright and festive colors of the Caribbean, the crystals of the Nordic countries and the traditional decorations of England and Europe. Of particular note is the Vatican tree decorated entirely with white ornaments featuring a life-size white peacock that adorns the tree’s branches. The featured tree is an elegant reproduction of President and Mrs. Reagan’s White House tree complete with “Reagan Red” decorations and dozens of hand-blown glass ornaments.

EXCLUSIVE ENGAGEMENT OF “AN AMERICAN WINTER: IMPRESSIONS IN WATERCOLOR” BY THOMAS WILLIAM JONES

For the first time ever, our holiday exhibition includes “An American Winter, Impressions in Watercolor by Thomas William Jones”.

Admired American artist, Thomas William Jones, is known for his mastery of the watercolor medium. Through sensitive brushwork, Jones creates his evocative and varied subjects; giving the viewer a sense of ‘having been there.’

President and Mrs. Reagan chose Jones to paint the Blue Room for their 1985 White House Christmas card. Within days of it being released, Jones was asked to also paint their 1986-1988 cards.
