French crystal produces a brilliant, sparkling effect and is dramatically heavier than ordinary glass. This French crystal oval paperweight features a quote from celebrated American radio broadcaster Paul Harvey, who was a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2005. An inspiring item for keeping desktop papers at contained, this paperweight also makes a great gift.
From William Taft, the 27th President, who introduced golf to the White House, through Donald Trump, golf has remained a popular pastime among Presidents. During the Great Depression, Herbert Hoover felt it was inappropriate to be seen on the golf course. George Bush respectfully curtailed his playing while troops were in Afghanistan and Iraq.
