The Christmas ornament honors James A. Garfield, the twentieth President of the United States. The ornament is inspired by the Victorian era, the period in which Garfield served. At its front, the ornament depicts a contemporaneous illustration of the South Facade of the White House, which is surrounded by an ornate wreath made of gold-finished brass. At the ornament's top, a gold string is attached for hanging.
