Description

The Christmas ornament honors Herbert Hoover, the thirty-first president of the United States. The ornament is a three-dimensional replica of a period fire truck, much like those that were dispatched to put out a fire at the White House in 1929. The replica also features a Christmas tree at the fire truck's back. The ornament has a gold string attached to its top for hanging and is enclosed in its original packaging.
