Furniture Upholstery for the Oval Office.

Silk damask in a dusky pink used to cover a suite of furniture given by Queen Elizabeth II in celebration of her Silver Jubilee in 1977. It was gifted to President Jimmy Carter for use in the Oval Office. The original set of Chippendale Furniture is in No. 10 Downing Street, London and the set given to the USA was the first reproduction in the series.

The design is also used in a smaller scale at St James’s Palace (Royal Collection) and another version can be seen in the Warner Textile Archive.
