The final embellishment of George Washington’s home is the “dove of peace” weathervane perched atop the cupola. The centuries-old symbol of peace held a special meaning for the man who had won his country’s independence and was trying to ensure that it would endure in peace. Mount Vernon’s Dove of Peace Stocking Holder is a wonderful holiday decoration with a very practical use. The white resin dove with weighted base can be displayed on your mantelpiece or on a bookshelf and the drop-down hook will hold a Christmas stocking or another decoration. The dove is 3” wingtip to wingtip and 4” from green olive branch to tail. The weighted base is ¾” tall and has a diameter of 2 ½”. The total height of the stocking holder is 5”. Both the dove and the base have crackle-look matte white finish while the coil and hook are painted with an antiqued copper finish. This item coordinates with Mount Vernon’s Dove of Peace Tree Topper and Mount Vernon’s Dove of Peace resin ornament.
