White House Collectible Ornament Collection
Service Detail from ChemArt Company
In 2007, ChemArt was granted the right to market, sell, and distribute the White House Annual Ornament in the retail channel by The White House Historical Association. ChemArt has been the sole manufacturer of the White House ornament since the collection's inception in 1981. This tradition, spanning three decades, celebrates each presidential legacy starting with George Washington. The single largest ornament program in the United States, the White House ornament sells over 1 million pieces each year.
The White House Historical Association is a charitable non-profit institution created in 1961 at the suggestion of Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy as a cooperating association of the National Park Service. All proceeds from its trusts and the sale of association products are used to fund the acquisition of historic furnishings and artwork for the permanent White House collection, to assist in the preservation of the public rooms, and to further its educational mission.
