A History of the Presidential Seal - Photo 3

These porcelain serving pieces, including a service plate, an entrée plate, and a ramekin, were made by Lenox China of Trenton, New Jersey, in 1918, during Woodrow Wilson's administration. Wilson's state china service was the first made for the White House in the United States. The seal in the center was taken from the president's flag that Wilson had redesigned in 1916.
