Continuing the series on Setting the President's Table, the next several posts highlight several of the controversies involving specific presidential china services within the White House collection. Not every administration has created its own service, but it is often necessary to augment previous collections for a number of reasons including, but not limited to, expansion of the number of available service pieces, or replacement of damaged or missing pieces. The china purchased for President Monroe's administration (1817-1825) was the very first designed specifically for presidential use. The china pattern featured a Napoleonic eagle in the center of the design, a symbol that was popular in both France and the United States at the time. The eagle holds a banner with the national motto "E Pluribus Unum" (Latin translation: out of many, one). Despite the patriotic tribute, there was criticism that the china represented foreign interests because it was manufactured in France. Shortly after this dust-up, Congress passed a law specifying that all White House furniture must be made in America. Despite this caveat, several administrations continued to order china from foreign manufacturers.
