To Own a Piece of the White House: Candlesticks

These wooden candlesticks were made by the National Lumber Manufacturers Association circa 1927. The candlesticks are made from Longleaf Pine wood used to reconstruct the White House roof in 1815 and removed during renovation that took place in 1927, during Calvin Coolidge's presidency. The informational label on the bottom of the candlesticks describes this history. This photograph of the candlesticks was taken by Jim Allen.
