Bluebonnet Plate Acrylic Magnet

A 2.5" magnet featuring Lady Bird Johnson's State Dessert plate and a bluebonnet. This beautiful example on a magnet is a tribute to the eye that First Lady Johnson had for beauty which became part of her Theme for America "The Beautification Of America".

Lady Bird Johnson took hands-on interest in the decorative theme, including a different wildflower appearing on each dessert plate. When Lady Bird Johnson made the determination to order the first State Dinner china since Harry Truman in 1951, she made a radical departure from the ever reliable Lenox Co, and contacted Tiffany and Company of New York. This would mark the very first time that the Official State China Service would be purchased with funds other than a tax-payer government appropriation.

The Texas State Flower, the bluebonnet, is featured on this magnet.
