First lady Laura Bush unveiled the George W. Bush State China in the Old Family Dining Room of the White House. The gold-rimmed china set was inspired by a few pieces of green basket weave-patterned French china in the White House collection believed to have come from James and Dolley Madison. The 320 place settings would replace breakage and accommodate larger functions that had needed combination of previous sets. It was paid for by a privately funded trust of the White House Historical Association, which also purchased a second, less formal set inspired by the magnolia trees on the White House lawn. New rugs were also unveiled. close
