Description

The Christmas ornament honors the wedding of Grover Cleveland and Frances Folsom, which took place in 1886 in the White House's Blue Room. At the ornament's front, a tinted reproduction of a Frank Leslie engraving appears of the bride and groom taking their vows. It is surrounded by a gold frame that is similar in design to the Clevelands' wedding album. At the ornament's top, a gold string is attached for hanging.
