Mount Vernon 1792 Set of Two Placemats

SKU: 21066

The image of Mount Vernon on these heat resistant placemats is attributed to Edward Savage, circa 1792. The "View of Mount Vernon, The West Front" is one of the earliest known oil paintings of George Washington's residence. Completed during Washington's first term as president, this scene shows the west front and courtyard of the Mansion, with George Washington and his family strolling along the bowling green. "No estate in United America is more pleasantly situated than this," wrote George Washington in 1790, only two years before this view was painted. In 200 years, no home in America has surpassed the Mount Vernon Mansion for its elegance and beauty. The placemats reverse to a repeat pattern of the dove of peace on a black background.
The placemats are approximately 11 ¼" x 16 ¾" x ¼". Made in the USA.
